Our Sea to Plate Crab Cakes Recipe

July 29, 2022

Come kayak-crabbing with us! 🦀

Continuing with our summer adventure theme, this week we’re taking you along for the ride for some kayak-crabbing followed by making our famous Dungeness crab cakes.

This is some hyper-fresh, hyper-local sea-to-plate sh*t right here.

We’ve been crabbing for years, but we’ve actually never gone crabbing off a motor-powered boat.  We’ve only crabbed via paddle-powered craft — because muscles.

Watch the video to get our signature crab cakes recipe and paddle out with us to pull up the pots in high winds.
