Yeosu marinated crab with its various and deep tastes

When taking a walk around Yeosu, one of the signs that stand out are signs of 'Gejang Baekban'.

The reason gejang often is called as 'rice thief' is because one eats more rice while sinked in the deep taste of gejang and when eating rice along with eggs and flesh corners of each crab, one cannot bear but eat more rice than one usually does.

Common blue crab gejang is a jeotgal(fermented seafood) unique to Korea, made with cleanly trimmed blue crab with cooled down seasoning soy sauce. 'Dolgejang Baekban' is gejang made of rock crab seasoned in various seasonings, including gochujang(red pepper paste), soy sauce, doenjang(soy paste), and chilgejang, gejang made by grinding the crab. Rock crab has color similar to its surrounding rocks and its firm flesh results in great texture while eating the gejang. Unlike common blue crabs, it has very hard shells but these shells are broken down before being served to make it more convenient to eat the crabs.
