DIRECTIONS

  • Pour boiling water over crabs to stun them to prevent them pinching you.
  • "Debark" and clean them (remove the top shell and gills), break in half.
  • If you wish, remove legs and back fins.
  • Fry the bacon in a large skillet, add crab pieces, onons, water, and if using, stewed tomatoes.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Add okra and boil gently, stirring often, 15 to 20 minutes- or simmer until the okra is tender but the crab is still firm.
