This week Sunday Supper is celebrating our hometowns by cooking up dishes that evoke those feelings of nostalgia and love for our good ol' stomping grounds!
My "original" hometown is not Seattle. I was raised a Southern California girl. But, as I have lived here for 8 years now, Seattle(ish) has become home to me. I used to miss the beaches and perpetual sunny days when I first moved to Western Washington, but now I revel in the lush green surroundings that are provided by those rainy Washington days. And before it seems that I am trying to say is Seattle = rain, can I just tell you that the summers I have spent here are some of the most glorious summers of my life? WOW is it beautiful!
I do have to admit though, that I fell in love with the food before I fell in love with the scenery. While my mind still pined away for the sunny So Cal beaches, my tummy fell head over heels in love with the Seattle food scene. I was never really a big seafood girl when I lived in San Diego. It just isn't something that is synonymous with San Diego. Mexican food yes? Seafood uummm. I mean it is a coastal city, but seafood was just never a big deal. I think the only "seafood" I really ate was fried fish or shrimp, and the only fish I had cooked with was tilapia.
Then I move to the Seattle area, hellooooo fresh seafood! It is known for it's salmon, clams, oysters, etc. But it was the dungeness crab that I fell in love with. Oh, don't me wrong, I loves me some fresh salmon and I learned to love something I nevvvvvvvvvvvvver thought I would.....raw oysters! The thought of that before I moved here made me shudder. But now I will gladly slurp from fresh shucked oysters with you any time!
But I digress. Let me return to my lovely crustaceans. Dungeness, or dungies as they are called here, have such a delicate sweet meat. Oh my, it is just heaven! I use it in crab chowder, Crab Puppies, , , and . Not to mention just devouring it steamed with a bit of melted butter....YUMMMM!!
Then when I heard about this weeks "Hometown Food" theme I thought long and hard about what I wanted to make. I knew it would be crab, but I wanted to do something new. That was when it hit me. New England has it's lobster rolls, why can't Seattle have it's own roll? There is no reason why not. And at that moment I took it upon myself to create this tasty little hometown treat.
The result? Well the result is a wonderful sandwich that revels in the true flavors of the dungeness crab, with little muss and fuss. I could seriously eat buckets of this stuff and, I am pretty sure, you will feel the same way!! So celebrate Seattle with me by whipping up a few of the fabulous crab rolls, and then hold them high with me *Cheers* Seattle!
