Realtor gift

I recently bought a home and really loved my agent, she and her husband walked me through a difficult and somewhat scary process so I gifted them with the crab and they are still talking about how delicious they were and it was the most unique gift they’ve ever received

How to Keep Dungeness Crabs Alive

Crab meat starts to spoil as soon as they die, so for the best flavor, it needs to be alive. Dungeness crab is actually pretty easy to keep alive and fresh with just a few tools. The most important thing to remember about how to keep Dungeness crabs alive is that they need oxygen and water just like other sea animals. That being said, you should never place alive Dungeness crab in freshwater as they might suffocate.

Instead, it is best to keep them in the cooler they arrive in, or in a cooler that you used to transport them from the sea. The live Dungeness crab should be covered with salt water, preferably from the ocean, and then covered loosely with a towel. To ensure that you can keep your Dungeness crab alive, stir the water gently on occasion to help reoxygenate the water. By keeping the crab cool and aerated, your live Dungeness crab will have a better chance of surviving until you are ready to cook it.

How to Cook Live Dungeness Crab

Now that you know how to keep Dungeness crab alive after buying one, head on over to click that Dungeness crab near me to place your order. While you wait, we have some easy-to-follow tips on how to cook live Dungeness crab that will bring out the flavor of the sea in every bite. If you are not quite sure what you want to make, or if you can keep your Dungeness crab alive, consider steaming it within a few hours of delivery. There is very little difference in the taste of live Dungeness crab and one that was steamed right away. Steamed crab stays fresh for three days in the refrigerator as well.

Cooking Dungeness crab live is pretty easy and the meat of the crustacean will taste delicious once complete. All you need is:

  • 2 Tbps Kosher salt
  • A few black peppercorns
  • 4 Sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 2 Cups of white wine
  • Water
  • 2-4 Live Dungeness crab

Take large, deep pot and fill it with enough water to cover the number of Dungeness crab alive you have on hand. Add all of your ingredients into the water and bring it to a rolling simmer. Once the water is at a gentle simmer, toss the live Dungeness crab in head first. Allow them to cook for 12-14 minutes. If the crabs are three pounds or more, they need to cook for at least 18-20 minutes. Once the time has elapsed, strain the crabs and rinse them with cool water immediately to stop the cooking process. Clean, and enjoy!
