  • 1 cup parsely, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup butter
  • 6 blue crabs
  • seafood seasoning
  • salt


In a large pot with a basket, steam the crabs in boiling water, making sure the water covers the crabs. Add the seafood seasoning and salt. Steam the crabs until they are red, approximately 10 minutes, and then let crabs cool to the touch. Crack crabs and remove the lungs, leaving the roe in and claws attached. Crack the crab in two sections down the middle. In a deep skillet, melt the butter and add the garlic and parley. Place the crabs in the butter mixture and then on a platter. Pour remaining butter from skillet onto the crabs before serving.
