    Ravenseyes's Note:

    We live by the water and crabbing season usually starts in late April and ends the end of October. This recipe contains the best of the best - the crab is tender and very flavorful

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      When we have a small catch we usually will steam the crabs instead of boiling - this would simply mean you place the vinegar in the bottom of the pot and add 2 - 3 cups of water just to get a steam going - the vinegar helps the crab meat come out of the shell easier. Steam for approximately 27 minutes.
    2. 2
      If you were boiling, you would just add all the ingredients to the pot adding enough water to cover the crabs- bring to a boil and throw in the live crabs. Cook for 12 minutes, drain and allow to rest before devouring.
    3. 3
      The ingredients that are listed below the bay leaves are all done to taste, using anywhere between 1/4 tsp to 1 tablespoons.

      Even though I haven't used this recipe, I was born in Philly & lived in Baltimore for many years, just loving steamed crabs. This recipe sounds good & I will try it. My dad & I used to crab on Tom's River & fish for flounder at the Briganteen Bay. Are the Pinees still there? Alan Leonetti
