peekytoe crab

/PEE-kee toh krab/
[English] plural peekytoe crabs

Described to me by Jeremy Sewell at Great Bay in Hotel Commonwealth in Boston as a crab found in the sun on the rocks, small but yielding with good, sweet meat. Before 1997 they were considered to be trash but are now considered to be a delicacy, They are probably shore crabs, which the French use mainly in soups.
