How to Re-Heat Your Hard Shell Crabs

Beer and Crabs Maryland
Best way to re-heat is in a steam pot. Microwaving or oven heating will dry the crabs out. We personally recommend eating the crabs cold if you don’t have access to a steamer.

Cleaning Soft Shell Crabs

  1.  To clean soft-shell crabs, hold the crab in one hand, and using a pair of kitchen shears, cut off the front of the crab, about 1/2 inch behind the eyes and mouth. Squeeze out the contents of the sack located directly behind the cut you just made.
  2. Lift one pointed end of the crab’s outer shell; remove and discard the gills. Repeat on the other side.
  3. Turn the crab over and snip off the small flap known as the apron. Rinse the entire crab well and pat dry. Once cleaned, crabs should be cooked or stored immediately.
