Steamed Crab Dozens line up a salty-sweet dinner for two, but what gives the crab a sweet taste?

Watermen give three reasons for the unbelievable sweet taste in a cooked Blue Crab.  One, the waters and habitat cause a sweetness, especially when the estuary has less salt.  Many believe Chesapeake Bay crabs taste sweeter than other waters.  Two, if the crab has recently molted verses a need to molt, the meat tastes sweeter from a newness of the crab’s growth.  Three, a crab house’s process in steaming a crab and either washing the crab too intensely causing the fat to wash away or not washing enough leaving a salty taste in the crab. Yes, a happy medium gives the crab a perfect “sweet” taste. Keep in mind, more fat complements the meat for a sweet taste too.  Add JO spiced #2 and you’ll have a perfect match of salty-sweet and spicy hot!
