Blue Crabs

Every since I watched David Chang cooked fresh blue crabs on Netflix’s series, The mind of a chef, I was on that quest to attempt it myself. Living in Vancouver you would think they would be easy to find blue crabs but in my case it wasn’t. Blue crabs are small and have very little meat in them, but since they are so small they absorbed the flavors much faster compared to cooking with larger crabs.

David on the show steamed them in beer and old’s bay seasoning salt. So I decided to try his recipe, I used a can of Alexander Keith’s beer and lots of old bay’s seasoning salt. I would applied the seasoning on once before steaming it then reapplied it for a 2nd time through mid-cook. As a result the crabs were more flavorful.
