DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot drop crabs into boiling water, making sure water covers the crabs.
  • Add Old Bay and salt to boiling water and crabs.
  • Cook until crabs are red, approximately 10 minutes.
  • Let crabs cool to the touch.
  • Remove the lungs (they can be found by lifting the back shell up, they look like"fingers").
  • Leave any roe in there and also leave the claws attached.
  • Crack crabs down the middle, making 2 pieces of each crab.
  • In a deep skillet, melt the butter and add garlic and parsley (I always add a little Tony Cacheres or cayenne too).
  • Place the crabs in the butter mixture, coating them and then place on a platter.
  • Pour remaining butter from skillet onto the crabs before serving.
  • Serve with bread to sop up the extra butter on the platter.
