Cooking and Cracking Dungeness Crab like a Pro!
Cooking & Serving Tips...
Our Live Dungeness crab is both versatile and easy to prepare. Place live crab in boiling salted water and cook for 18-20 minutes (after the water returns to a boil), turning the shell bright orange. Immerse in cold water to cool before cleaning. Fresh Whole-Cooks can be served chilled or heated in a steamer, broiler or oven for 4 to 5 minutes. Clean the crab by removing the gills and viscera before serving. Serve with melted butter or dipping sauce. Dungeness meat also goes well with pasta, in casseroles and in seafood-based soups.
