Crab Preparation Methods

Eating, selling or taking (harvesting) blue crabs from Newark Bay Complex and the tidal Passaic River is prohibited. The Newark Bay Complex is located in northeastern New Jersey. It includes the Newark Bay, tidal Hackensack River, Arthur Kill, Kill Van Kull and tidal tributaries. If blue crabs are taken from water bodies other than the Passaic River/Newark Bay Complex, the following preparation techniques can be followed to reduce exposure to some contaminants.

The highest levels of chemical contaminants are found in the hepatopancreas, commonly known as the tomalley or green gland. It is the yellowish green gland under the gills. This material is found next to the lump meat (backfin) portion of the crab. Chill and break the crabs immediately before cooking. Care must be taken to remove all of the hepatopancreas before cooking.

There is no specific cooking method available to reduce the chemical contaminant levels in blue crabs. The following steps for proper preparation are key to reducing your exposure to harmful chemical contaminants.

* Do not eat the green gland (hepatopancreas).

* Remove green gland (hepatopancreas) before cooking.

* After cooking, discard the cooking water.

* Do not use cooking water or green gland (hepatopancreas) in any juices, sauces, bisques or soups.

Yes.   That's the same 'warning' they print each year.

I must be lying about it.    Roll Eyes

The warning about eating the glands is posted annually in one form or another.

I didn't say you were lying. I said the 2012 warnings were not posted here and I was unaware of it (I searched the forums first). If it is 2012 why would I care about the 2010 or 2011 warnings? Anyway I revised the post as I believe the green gland warning only applies to the Hudson and Raritan rivers.

In addition to taste, health is also a reason to practice CBC.
