The blue crab is a very popular seafood. If you’re considering buying some local blue claw crabs, you might be wondering what does blue crab taste like?

A blue crab has white meat which is delicate, flaky, succulent, rich, buttery and tender with a mild, salty ocean flavor and a subtle sweet undertone. It has the feel of a scallop, but the blue crab is unique and hard to compare to anything else from out of the ocean.

One way to cook your Long Island Blue Claw Crabs:

1. Make sure to cook only live crabs!
2. Add enough liquid (usually a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar) to reach the bottom of the steaming basket and bring to a boil. Using tongs, place the crabs in the pot in layers while seasoning as you go.
3. Cover and steam for at least 12 minutes. The shells will turn a bright red.
4. Remove crabs from pot and allow to cool on ice. Discard all cooking liquid and do not reuse for sauces, soups, or stews as chemicals from crab tomalley leach into this water during cooking.
5. Ready the napkins and bib and prepare for the feast!
