Tip
  • When buying live hard-shell blue crabs, count on one to three ounces of meat per crab. To cook them, bring 8 quarts water, 2 teaspoons salt, and if desired, some crab boil seasoning to a boil. Rinse 12 crabs in cold water and plunge into the boiling water. Return to boiling and cook 15 minutes. Drain and rinse the crabs under cold running water until cool.
