Blue Crab

Blue crabs are one of the most desirable shellfish sold in fish markets. Although there are numerous ways to cook these beauties, a unique cooking method is to fry the crabs shortly after they shed their skin. The soft replacement can be eaten whole with the rest of the crab.

Male hard crabs are usually called “Jimmies”, mature female crabs are usually called “sooks”. Jimmies are generally larger and more meaty, therefore more desirable for eating whole–steamed or boiled. Sooks are often sold to commercial processing plants to be picked and packaged as fresh or pasteurized meat. For crabfeasts or picnics, always ask for Jimmies.
