Episode 312: Maryland Crab Feast

This show focuses on my favorite food growing up (and still one of my all-time favorite periods): callinectes sapidus, better known as the Maryland blue crab Come springtime, Maryland seafood markets and restaurants come alive—literally—with soft shell crabs, eaten shell and all, traditionally deep-fried, here seared over live fire. And no trip to Charm City is complete without crab cakes at Faidley’s at Lexington Market. Which brings us to the summum of the Maryland crab experience: a crab feast known as Maryland steamed crabs. The Project Fire version starts with a blazing wood fire. In this show a native son returns home to grill and eat crab!
