How to Pick a Crab

Crab meat is a versatile ingredient that can be incorporated into a wide variety of dishes. Follow these steps to make sure you’re getting the most meat out of your crabs. Begin by removing the claws and setting them aside for later use. Then remove the legs and backfins. Save any of the premium meat that is attached to the backfins. To open the body of the crab, pry open the crab’s apron. Remove the apron and discard it. Then carefully pull off the top shell to expose the inside of the crab. Remove the crabs lungs and internal organs, these can be discarded along with the top shell. Break the remaining portion of the crab in half. You will now have two equal sections. Then squeeze and separate the section of crab to provide access to the remaining meat. After removing the edible pieces of white meat, repeat the process to pick the remaining section. Carefully pull out each bit of delicious white crab meat until all sections are clean. Finally, to remove crab meat from each claw, crack the inside of the crab claw using a mallet. Once the claw is cracked, you can pry open the claw and remove the meat with your fingers. Once finished, the crab meat is ready to be seasoned and enjoyed, or incorporated into your favorite recipe!
