Yield: 6 servings


    • 24 live Florida blue crabs
    • 6 quarts boiling water
    • 1/3 cup salt


Place live crabs in boiling, salted water.

Cover and return to the boiling point. Reduce heat, simmer for 12-15 minutes.

Drain. Rinse in cold water. Serve hot or cold.

Crabs may be boiled in seasoned water by using a commercially packaged blend of spices designed for boiling crab.

Crabs may be cleaned prior to cooking; cook only the claws and inner skeleton (or pod) which contain the white body meat.

Cooking time should be reduced 5-7 minutes.

Crabs may be steamed by placing them in a steamer over boiling water.

Sprinkle with Tabasco and vinegar, cover the pot, and steam about 10 minutes.
