STEAMED BLUE CRABS



Steamed Blue Crabs image

For steamed crabs, that beach-town summer standby, the Chesapeake catechism teaches plenty: buy more crabs than you think you need, use more spice, a larger pot. Get wooden mallets. Prepare to eat for a while. If you don't have a crab pot, and most of us don't, fiddle with the largest stockpot or pasta boiler you have. Set a few clean, empty metal cans upside down on the bottom or invert a colander in there, anything that allows you to have a boiling liquid at the bottom and crabs above it, with none of them swimming around in the soup.

Time 30m

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 4

12 ounces beer
1 cup apple-cider vinegar
1 dozen large blue crabs
1/2 cup Chesapeake-style crab seasoning, preferably Old Bay

Steps:

  • Place a steamer pot or any large, heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid on the stove. (In the latter case, improvise a rack on the bottom of the pot that will keep crabs a few inches from the bottom.) Add the beer, vinegar and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Put a layer of crabs on the rack in the pot. Sprinkle with a generous amount of seasoning, then repeat with another layer, and another, until all 12 crabs are in pot (and well seasoned). Cover and steam over medium-high heat until the crabs are bright red, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the crabs with tongs. Serve over newspaper, with mallets and picks.

OLD BAY STEAMED BLUE CRABS



OLD BAY Steamed Blue Crabs image

This is where it all began for OLD BAY® Seasoning six decades ago. Maine has its lobsters, California has its wines and Louisiana has its hot sauces. In Maryland, the pride and joy of the Chesapeake Bay coastline is the prized blue crab. Steaming crabs is a social event - a celebration of family and friends, where everybody gets a little messy and has a lot of fun. And OLD BAY is there for every gathering, like a good friend. Blue crabs are it's raison d'être (ask your French philosopher friends), and the two just go together as if they were made for each other (they were, actually).

Categories     Ginger     Shellfish     Steam     Quick & Easy     Seafood     Crab     Summer     Gourmet

Yield Makes 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

1/2 cup fresh cilantro stems, coarsely chopped
36 live blue crabs (1/4 to 1/3 lb each; 3 dozen), well rinsed
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
1/2 cup fermented fine-quality soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons Chinese black vinegar* (preferably Chinkiang) or cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Special Equipment
a wide 6- to 8-qt heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid

Steps:

  • Bring 1 1/2 inches water to a boil in pot. Add cilantro stems, then carefully add half of crabs using tongs and return to a boil. Cook, covered with lid, 8 minutes (for 1/4-pound crabs) to 10 minutes (for 1/3-pound crabs) from time they enter water. (Break shell of 1 claw to check for doneness; crabmeat should be opaque.) Transfer crabs with long-handled tongs to a large platter, reserving cooking liquid in pot, and keep warm, loosely covered with foil. Cook remaining crabs in same manner.
  • While crabs cook, stir together ginger (to taste), soy sauce, sugar, water, vinegar, and salt in a small bowl until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  • If necessary, dip crabs in cooking liquid to remove any external residue, then transfer to another large platter. Serve crabs hot, with dipping sauce.

STEAMED MARYLAND BLUE CRABS FOR 14



Steamed Maryland Blue Crabs for 14 image

Provided by Food Network

Categories     main-dish

Time 35m

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 bushel (about 8 dozen) live Maryland blue crabs, preferably large. (NOTE: Males are usually larger.) A bushel is enough for 2 to 3 pots of crabs, depending on their size.
2 (12-ounce) cans beer
4 cups water
1 (8-ounce) packet crab boil seasoning, usually available where crabs are purchased
2 sticks butter, melted (optional)

Steps:

  • Eating guidelines: It is easier to learn how to eat crabs from an expert, but if none is available, here are step-by-step instructions. First, pull off claws and legs. Break legs and check for meat. Sucking is okay. Some like to save the claws for last because they are rather dessert-like, although the "lump" meat from the body is prized most. Next, turn the crab on its back. You will see an elongated part of the shell that looks like a "T." Some call it the key, even though it doesn't look very much like one. The female key is plumper; the male's is more elongated. Pull the key back, breaking it off, which makes the rest of the shell easy to remove. Now the body of the crab is shell-less. You will now see the long rib-like strips on either side of the cavity. These are the crab's gills. Edible, but not very good. Pull them off, and you will more easily be able to break the crab in half. When you do this, you will most likely now see a good amount of white, fleshy "lump" crab meat. Continue opening the small sections to expose more meat. You will not need mallets or hammers for this. When you are ready for the claws, break them in half at the joint. Take a wooden mallet and whack the large half hard. Don't be shy. Other helpful hints: Don't wear your Sunday best. If it tastes good, you can eat it. Plates and cutlery are unnecessary; the brown paper is a communal plate. Bibs are for babies. When finished, steamed hand towels are very welcome. The easiest way to dispose of the mess is to roll up the brown paper with all the shells, etc. on it -- taking care to "rescue" knives, bowls, etc. first -- and discard in outdoor trash can. The garbage may attract animals, so be sure to keep the lid on tight. Note: Leftover crabs are excellent cold, served with a mayonnaise based dipping sauce. Cooked crabs will keep in refrigerator for a few days.
  • Cover tables, preferably outdoors, with brown packaging paper and tape. For each pot of crabs, add water, beer, and approximately 1/4 packet of crab boil seasoning to pot. Bring to boil. With gloves on, remove crabs from bushel, you may have to pull them apart (carefully!) and put/shake a few at a time into pot. It is best to grab them from behind to avoid the claws, as their legs only move forward. Add enough crabs to fill bottom of pot. Sprinkle more crab boil seasoning over first layer of crabs. Continue, alternating crabs and seasoning until pot is nearly full, leaving about an inch at the top. Cover tightly. Steam over high heat for 14 to 16 minutes, or until shells are bright orange. Halfway through cooking time, shake pot to redistribute seasoning. When done, remove pot from heat. Drain over sink the accumulated liquid from pot. Spread crabs onto large tray; place in center of table where guests help themselves. Serve with small dishes of melted butter and, for those who like added seasoning, place small bowls of extra crab boil seasoning on table.

BLUE CRABS WITH SPICY BUTTER



Blue Crabs with Spicy Butter image

Categories     main-dish

Time 1h

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

One 12-ounce bottle lager-style beer
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
12 live blue crabs, preferably large males
1/2 cup Old Bay Seasoning
Spicy Butter (see recipe below)
Lemon wedges, for serving
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 small garlic clove, finely grated

Steps:

  • Combine the beer and vinegar with 1 cup of water in a very large pot. Add a steamer insert and bring the liquid to a boil over high heat. Add the crabs and 1/4 cup of the Old Bay and cook, covered, until the crabs are bright red, 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size. Transfer the crabs to a large platter and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup Old Bay.
  • Serve the hot crabs with the Spicy Butter and lemon wedges on the side.
  • Make the butter while the crabs cook: combine the butter, Old Bay, cayenne and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat. Melt the butter, skimming off any foam that rises to the surface. Pour the melted butter into a small ramekin, leaving the milk solids in the saucepan.
