MARYLAND BLUE CRABS QUESTIONS
The peak season for Maryland Blue Crabs is from April to the end of November. The biggest, heaviest crabs are typically harvested during the fall months (September to mid-November).
In December, as the weather cools down, crabs from the Chesapeake Bay head towards the warmer waters. During this “off-season” we offer either flash frozen Maryland Blue Crabs or “Maryland-style” Blue Crabs from North Carolina and Louisiana.

Eat, reheat or refrigerate crabs immediately upon receipt. There is no appreciable loss of quality from reheating.

Place a steamer basket in a large pot with enough water to reach the bottom of the basket.
Once the water is boiling, place the crabs inside, season and cover.
Steam the crabs for five minutes or until the meat is hot throughout.
If you don’t have a steamer basket on hand you can also reheat the crabs in the oven for approximately 10 minutes at 375°F.
