If you lived near Dover I can't tell you anything about steamed crabs you don't already know. My father has a commercial license but hasn't used it in a few years.

Every Saturday in the summer and early fall we ate crabs. He used to put corn in the husk on the top and steam with the crabs. After we husked the corn on the cob when it came out we would butter it and roll it on top of the crabs to get old bay on the ears.

I guess blues are OK if you can't get Dungeness....

Fortunately the season's open on the Pacific Coast, and one of our local grocery chains has them for $3.99 a pound. Gonna pick up a mess on the way home tonight.

do you mostly just boil, crack, pluck and dip into butter?

or no butter?

or crabcakes?

or how?

I really like crabs too though we usually get the crab meat in a can and make crabcakes and dip them in a sauce that is a combo of hellmans mayonaise and tobasco (chipotle flavored).

I've eaten a lot of blue crabs in my time but I've never once had them with butter. It just never occurred to me to try them that way. Lots of Old Bay and beer in the pot is a must.

Anyone seen the "save the crabs" commercials they air in the DC area? Favorite quote: "No crab should die, suffocating from fertilizer run off. Instead, they should perish in tasty melted butter." (paraphrasing slightly)
