I was looking for a crab because I really wanted to eat it, and I happened to find Hanasaki Crab! I don’t see it much in Honshu, but it seems to be quite popular in Hokkaido. The best season is summer. Due to its limited habitat, it is called the phantom crab. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but it seems to be characterized by turning bright red when boiled. As for the taste, it is very delicious! The texture is similar to that of red king crab, but the impression is that it is much more elastic and packed. Crab miso is a small amount compared to horsehair crab. The shell is spiky, so work gloves are a must!
