Fresh Cooked Crabs
Jul 17th, 2014
Jet Fresh this week are CRABS! Our current supply of Cooked Crabs are FRESH product, from the East Coast USA between Virginia & the Carolinas! A full bushel contains about 72 crabs. They are either sold by the each, by the dozen, half bushel or full bushel. Try them with drawn butter. Bring butter to a boil, spoon out froth from the top, after milk solids sink to the bottom, carefully pour the golden top layer into a heat proof bowl. There is NOTHING quite like Surf N Turf! Get your favorite cut of steak from our Butcher Block. Crabs are already cooked for ease of preparation & transportation to your favorite backyard party!
Want to have a Cooked Crab Feast? Whether you’re planning a crab feast for 10 or 40, include all the trimmings from corn on the cob to ice-cold beer and soft drinks. Here are some of the things you’ll need.
Several full newspapers
6-9 crabs per person
Large bowl for utensils
1/2 dozen fresh lemons, quartered
Individual ramekins or custard cups
Several loaves of fresh, crusty bread
Two large jars or containers
Wooden crab mallets or lobster/nut crackers
Small appetizer forks
Large trash bag or container
Crushed or cubed ice
- Lay several layers of open newspaper pages on a kitchen table or outdoor picnic table and place paper towel rolls around the table. Fill one large container with crab mallets or lobster or nut crackers and another with serrated knives and small appetizer forks and set them on the table.
- Dump the crabs onto the newspaper in the middle of the table.
- Fill individual ramekins or custard cups with melted butter or white vinegar and serve to each guest. Pass around crusty bread and butter, extra seafood seasoning, sliced tomatoes, quartered lemons and beverages.
- Have diners leave the discarded crab shells on the table when finished, then just roll up the newspaper layers for disposal.
Don’t forget your side dishes either:
Crab-eating is a fairly austere affair, with the crabs themselves getting the focus. But, if you’re up for it, accompanying platters of cole slaw, potato salad, french fries, steaming corn on the cob, and fresh sliced summertime tomatoes would be great. And don’t forget icy pitchers of beer!
