Takezaki Crabs

Takezaki crab is a nickname for a type of blue crab called Gazami. Growing over 30 cm in size, male crabs taste best in summer, while female crabs taste best in winter. Delicious dipped in vinegar-soy sauce or eaten with the unique sauces made by the various restaurants, Takezaki crab can be enjoyed in many forms, including miso soup, zosui and croquette, however, if the crab's inherent flavor is to be enjoyed as is, boiling it in salt is definitely the way to go. The resulting subtle sweetness is unbearably good.
