I was looking at the various ways of cleaning live crabs and ran across this guys video.  Ridiculously quick and easy.  We just do this same thing using the front corner of the yak as soon as we get back to the beach and throw em on ice.

That's a horrible way to clean crabs! All that butter wasted! I put hot rice into the shell, season with a little srsame oil... Yum yum yum!

the crab butter??

 :smt009

That's my fave part....

 :smt006

While it, the liver and blood, are tasty they are also where all the really unhealthy toxins accumulate.  Think mercury, PCB's, other heavy metals, and the really bad stuff from the breaking down plastics that are in the different Gyres.  The liver is the body's filter.  Sorry.

Meh. I like it too much to not eat it, and waste it by cleaning it before cooking...

Each to his own I guess.

You should be less concerned about toxins and more concerned about consuming some citrus   :smt003

I don't think I've ever seen anyone clean a blue crab before cooking back home in New Orleans...

Yes, blue crabs are smaller, but I would think the butter/guts/viscera issue would be the same in regards to the things you describe above...

Jim

So far, that's hearsay, but from the likes of my doctor and other sources, so I'll see what I can troll up on the topic.

Don't do what I did yesterday.  Step one remove the apron or the belly flap on the male..not with your thumb!
Now I have a piece deep under my thumbnail..can't get it out have to go to the Dr tomorrow...use a butter knife or a flat head screwdriver
How'd it go @ the dr?

The state puts up all sorts of restrictions on eating fish and shellfish, yet only posts warnings for dungeness crab during domoic acid events.  When domoic acid is not present, are there any posted restrictions?
