Chesapeake Crab Connection Co. celebrates a HUGE Female Blue Crab Catch!

Captain Jim sets aside the best catches for your “Stay-at-Home” meals.  This week his crab boats pulled pots filled with bushels of female blue crabs.  Known for the red-tipped claws and bell-shaped bottom apron, females are celebrated for their denser meat and some say sweeter taste.  USA Blue Crabs boast a salty-sweet taste with the ideal estuary environment for the crab.  This means the water isn’t too salty or fresh.  Just right!  Female crabs contain claw, lump and jumbo meat. We spice and steam them with the Chesapeake Bay traditional recipe.  In fact, we won the title “Best Maryland Blue Crabs 2018-2019.”  Jumbo Females make for a fun lunch or festive dinner with the family gathered ‘round.  Set out the mallets, claw crackers and ramekins filled with hot butter for a crab feast like no other!

Crab Picking Tips

1/Cover the picnic table with crab paper and plenty of paper towels.  Give your hungry crew a mallet, claw cracker and seafood fork.  Don’t forget the ramekins filled with hot butter and a refreshing beverage.

2/Grab your first crab and snap off all the legs.  Save the claws for cracking and the smaller legs if you pride yourself in picking every last morsel.  (We don’t blame you!) Pull up on the apron.  This creates a hole at the top shell. Pry off the top shell and break the crab in half.  Scrape away the gills. Pull large jumbo meat from the back-swimming legs and find lump along the two large crab halves.  Savor a freshly caught and steamed blue crab from USA waters!
