Steamed Blue Crabs

Being a fisherman’s daughter isn’t so much fun, especially having to wake up before the crack of dawn, put on some boots, hop on a small boat and off to the bay to pull up crab traps and netted for fish. Every Saturday morning was the most dreadful for me while the other kids get to sleep in and watch their favorite cartoons! I was sitting out on the bay half asleep and annoyed that the morning sun kept shining in my face. However, every hard work always have its perks. I get to eat the most seafood right off the boat…


Live blue crabs
your favorite dipping sauce

Pour water into the bottom part of the steamer and turn on high heat to let the water start boiling.

I usually put the crabs in the sink and run cold water over it to wash some of the slimy stuff off it.

Using a tong, put the crabs on the steamer tray and bring it to the steamer. Steam for about 25 min. or until the crab is a pretty orange color.

Take it out and serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce!
