Boiling crabs during the summer can be easy when you have all the right stuff! This easy recipe can be done indoors or out! If your boiling outdoors for a party just make sure you have a huge pot and a propane burner.
I also recommend lining your table with a plastic or vinyl cloth covered with news papers. Lots of paper towels, Tabasco, butter, good friends and drinks!
3 Quarts of water
One package Zatarain's Shrimp & Crab Boil In Bag
1/4 C Salt
1 Whole Lemon quartered
One Dozen Crabs
Two Tablespoons Vinegar
Add all ingredients to your large pot, bring to a boil. Carefully add the crabs. Return to boil and let cook for 20 minutes. Turn off heat source and let sit for five minutes (this lets the crabs absorb more of the spices).
Remove Crabs from liquid and serve with extra lemon and drawn butter.
Karen's Tip: To spice up the crabs a bit, add some Tabasco to the liquid!
