First cover the table with brown paper, and get the wooden hammers ready to whacking the claws:
Then we started picking the stringy white crab meat after pulling off the big shells and hammering the claws to pull out the sweet meat. 🦀
If you enjoy working for your food (and having to pull it out of a shell), then this is a fun meal you should try.
This was my first time picking crab, and the spicy meat and comraderie of working on your food together made it a memorable time.
