    The crab cakes are fresh made. I agree, if I eat out, I don't want something I usually make at home. I want fresh not frozen also, that's why I always get steamed shrimp (not streamed lol). Now I'm hungry for some good seafood.

    Oh, I dont expect anyones picking the crabs, or even that they are from DC, just that the crab meat is fresh, not frozen.

    A lot of the "fresh" shrimp sold in grocery stores (Wegman's in this case) is actually previously frozen. They open up a frozen bag and let it thaw on the ice in the case and sell it for a couple of bucks more than the already frozen shrimp. Once that sells, they do it over again.

    My oldest works at Jerry's and yes, they are made fresh daily. He had never shucked a crab before starting there. It was trial by fire.

    Here in Maryland, do you really want "fresh" shrimp that was caught in the gulf waters and sent to a distributor and then to the restaurant/market, what, 5 or 6 days later? They also did a WaPo article on that years ago. A lot of these huge fish companies actually have processing plants right in the belly of the ship, and you are much better off with a frozen piece of fish that was processed and frozen the same day, versus a fresh piece that's 4-5-6 days old. Should you get fresh crabs, soft crabs, oysters, rockfish, other local fish, sure, but when it comes to most stuff out of the area you shouldn't be as concerned.

    This was in Virginia, but I get what you are saying and agree. Flash frozen is better than days or a week old.

    I guess if it's really cold out, a flasher will be frozen in no time.
