These bad boys were going cheap at my local fish market.
What should I do with them?
>DONT: Eat them with a girl. Too messy.
I'd buy literally all of them boil them in a keg in cut in half over a pit fire with about 2 pounds of Old Bay and oysters, clams or whatever I could buy, dump a gallon of malt liquor in with it. Cook some rice or other cheap shit in the house to pad it out.
Doesn't really work if you don't have at least 10 friends, though.
Use them as hands to cook other sea creatures
I never understood why white people (blacks too but they don't really count for anything) get so excited about crabs. Especially the way they cook it, whereby it basically has no chance of ever tasting good. And those horrid giant crab legs that have the texture of literal garbage.
Crabs and glutinous rice is basically the only time crabs will ever be acceptable in my book. Literally every other crab recipe can fuck off.
The only reason you think it's good is that it's somewhat more expensive than chicken tenders and therefore is something of a delicacy among people without access to legitimately good food.
Just do this. Potatoes and corn boiling on the bottom, crab legs get steamed on top. Butter and old bay
