Fun fact! This crab is named after the town of Dungeness, Washington, where it’s a prized shellfish. Dungeness crab is one of the most valuable fisheries on the West coast and also the most abundant crab in California. Its meat is tender and juicy with a sweet, mild taste. It’s honestly superb on its own, but you can also kick it up a notch with some lemon, herbs, and butter, or make your own crab cakes at home!
