In SC's family, the boys only eat the roe, and they leave all the crab legs and claws to my MIL.

Did you cook this all by yourself? If so, then two thumbs up for you! I really enjoy reading your blog posts, especially looking at the nice photographs you took. Looking forward to read more of your work! :D

What I understand is the pointed flab is the female crab and the round flab is the male.
