People usually steamed crabs with cider vinegar, old bay seasoning, and beer. I like mine plain because I want to taste the sweetness of the crab meat. There are many kinds of crab, but none can match the sweet taste great texture of the blue crab. I bought one dozen at the market today. These are live Maryland Blue Crabs.
They need to be washed before steam.
They are ready to be steamed.
After 20-30 minutes, they are done. Yummy!
Check out the pretty color.
Here is a closer look. Between my hubby and I , we finished one dozen crabs. They were delicious. I dipped mine with lime juice, salt and pepper.
