Cracked Crabs

Bring all the creekside spirit of a crab crack indoors, if you have a long table covered with plenty of newspapers and friends keen on eating well! It’s not unusual for Ted and Matt to order upwards of 200 live blue crabs for their crab crack parties. Because you have to cook the crabs in batches, we’ve scaled the recipe down to 12, so you can prepare them easily on a cooktop.
