Catch some king crab from Deadliest Catch

Counting down to the season premiere of "Deadliest Catch" and got this press release:

"Seafood connoisseurs are in for a treat the next time they dine at The Oceanaire Seafood Room (http://www.theoceanaire.com/). The upscale seafood restaurant known for serving ultra-fresh seafood, made an unprecedented boatload purchase of Alaskan king crab from the Fishing Vessel (F/V), Time Bandit.

The Time Bandit is a member of the crab fishing fleet featured in the Discovery Channel’s hit series, Deadliest Catch; the boat is owned by the Hillstrand Brothers, Andy, Johnathan and Neal. After the catch was processed, Oceanaire acquired a whopping 40,000 pounds of its king crab clusters to be sold in the company’s 15 restaurants nationwide."

Pretty cool, right? Even cooler, Seattle's Oceanaire chef Eric Donnelly was aboard the Time Bandit last season. Can't wait to hear some tales from the old salt.
