I really don't think it's fair to put "Crab Cakes" in there. Thats like asking to compare how ya like your burgers prepared ---- Grilled, Fried, ground round, etc. ----------- or a NY Strip!!! It's all beef -   B U T what a difference ............

In my honest opinion the best food that God put on this Earth is good old Maryland style steamed crabs.  I NEVER get tired of them. Tongue  

I've tried them the boiled way just to see what it was like and it was good but not as good, to me, as the Maryland style.

I like pretty much anything on that list except maybe the deep fried ones.

I voted for Maryland steamed with vinegar, beer and water, crabs sprinkled with JO seasoning. Oh of course an ice cold Corona to go along.
Good Times.

If you have some left after your feast it's good to pick some of that meat and put it into a butter/cream sauce (you can use lo cal if ya want) and put it over linguini.  Good eatin'.

Steve, you forgot Italian style, with gravy (sauce) and pasta!

Nothing like the red (sauce), white (pasta) and blue (crabs)!

You got it,
A good family style way to do blue crabs......
Pre-cleaned w/ claws broken off and bodies broken in half. Sautee the claws in olive oil and lots of garlic, salt pepper and parsley. As the claws get to be about 3/4 done add in tomato and simmer for 1-2 hours. Season to liking.... maybe a fresh basil leaf or two.

Bodies in olive oil, garlic salt and pepper and fresh parsley w/ a touch of ale to help steam them. put the lid on!! Steam until reddish orange...then they are done.

There you have it. Simple and easy and delicious. Take the claws out of the sauce...not all of them and top your pasta w/ the red sauce. You have red claws, white bodies and a great dinner. There is a nice dipping suace created from the bodies as well. Nice loaf of Italian bread will disappear before your eyes when you put the white stuff out....that can even go over your pasta if you want.....it's delicious.

I grew up eating blue crabs like this. However, i do them different ways as well.

I love steaming them in olive oil, garlic, beer, onions, parsley and old bay. That also makes for a great "dipping the bread" sauce. You sautee what needs be and then add the beer and generously coat the crabs w/ old bay seasoning or variations....I like the special blend that T.J.'s in Somers Point puts out.
Have plenty of beer w/ this one!!

YO De crabber ---

It was pretty warm today. I went to NJ Graveling Point to try some Striper fishing today. Walked around and talked to the good fishermen, (about a dozen or so there around 10am), no one had seen anything going on. Too cold. My partner and I just left our poles in the car. Maybe try next week if the water warms up any.

Nice day for walking aroung though ...... good to be back out next to the water.
