Smothered Raw Crabs (GeiJang 게장)

These are one of my first loves in Korean food. Whenever we went out for galbi, I pushed for the restaurants with the best GeiJang 게장, raw split crabs smothered in a gochujang mixture.

Eun Jeong tries to make it look dignified, but, like eating ribs in the South, there’s no dainty graceful way to eat these. For me, I use a combination of chopsticks and fingers to transport the little crabbies to my mouth, where I proceed to suck and suck hard–like a new Rocco DiSpirito reality show.

Like many shellfish, this is a sensual food. You can’t avoid the sexual metaphors on this one.
