Steamed Crabs at The Beach- How to pick ‘em & eat ‘em

EATING CRABS in Ocean City Maryland…A place where adults are actually encouraged to wear a bib, eat with their hands, get food all over the place, pound on the table with a hammer, throw their leftovers in a pile, make an absolute mess…and have a great old time doing so...

Here are a few tips’…

  • Don’t worry about the mess.
  • Don’t rub your eyes until you have thoroughly washed your hands with soap and water.
  • Have fun and enjoy the experience, because that is what it is, AN EXPERIENCE, and maybe a cold beer.

1. Tools: All you need are a mallet, a dull knife, and plenty of old newspaper to cover your table.

2. Remove the front claws and put them aside as you will come back to them later. Lots of good meat in the claws.

3. Pull off the rest of the legs: Sometimes, you get lucky and some crab meat pulls out with them. Just enjoy it.

4. Open the apron:  Pull up the apron on the bottom of the crab and break it off.

5. Open the crab: You can now easily pull the hard shell off of the top of the crab.

6. Clean the crab out by using dull knife. Scrape out and discard anything that does not look appealing to you – the yellow “mustard” and the lungs.
Break the crab body in half…

7. Break in half: You are now down to the main part of the crab. Simply grasp it in both hands and break it in half to expose the sweet crab meat.

8. The crab meat: can be found in all of the little nooks and crannies of the Maryland Hard Crab. This is the finest tasting Maryland Seafood anywhere.

What is mallet used for? Use the mallet to crack the claws. And use the dull knife  to scrape out and discard anything that does not look appealing and helps to pull the crab meat out from all the little nooks and crannies.

Happy Eating from Ocean City Maryland.
