Clean Before You Cook


1. Stun live blue crab by placing in ice water for five minutes.

2. Grasp crab by its legs and under top shell spine (stunned and can be handled bare handed).

3. Pry off the top shell using the shell's spine for leverage. This instantly kills the crab.

4. Flip crab over and remove the apron.

5. Using high pressure water, spray out the entrails.

6. Using thumb, twist off the mouth parts.

7. Remove spongy gills from both halves and rinse..

8. Cleaned and ready to cook.

Note: If the water pressure is sufficient, you can combine steps 5 and 7 by using the water spray to remove the gills.
