Boiled Blue Crab
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.
