Steamed Crabs

Updated on March 3, 2012

Steamed Crabs

Crab lovers unite and celebrate the uniqueness of this delicious crustacean. Most people that enjoy dining on seafood also enjoy eating crab and crabmeat. There are different types of crab from different parts of the world that should be listed and includes the Alaskan King Crab, the Snow Crab (Opilio), Dungeness crab, Jonas crab, Stone crab and the Maryland Blue crab.

All of these are delicious and can be prepared utilizing various cooking and preparation methods but steaming these critters is probably the most simple and best to prepare crab of any sort.

The most basic setup is to start with a large pot, put in a steamer rack, put in water, stack in your crabs, put on your favorite seasonings and steam for a few minutes until done. But of course, for as many chefs as we have, we also haveĀ as many different ways to perfectly steam crab. No matter how you slice it steaming and eating fresh crab is a delicacy in anyone's recipe book.

Where to Get the Best

While just about any type of crab can be steamed as the cooking method, and it will probably be delicious. However, if you were to ask 10 people where can you get the best steamed, the majority may say in the Maryland, Chesapeake Bay area. This is because it is such an icon when it comes to preparing and eating the best crab dishes from steaming. While this may be true, or not, there are also many people who would remind us that there are also many other places to get steamed crabs throughout the Southern U.S. along the Gulf of Mexico.
