CRAB CARE & COOKING
Live crab need to be kept cool and damp 8-10 hours if possible in prime conditions. Do not submerge in water, crabs need oxygen to breath! Once crab dies they must be cleaned within 2 hours before the meat deteriorates.
Cleaned, gills removed, guts out, uncooked crab can be stored in fridge up to 24 hours before cooking.
Bring salted water to boil, drop crab into pot. Crab whole - 12 minutes. Cleaned crab - 7 minutes. Run under cold water to stop cooking process.
We recommend for maximum freshness consume or freeze cooked crab within 2 days.
