Red Lobster's Steamed Blue Crab
Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 dozen large male blue crabs -- see * Note
1 can your favorite beer
1/4 cup sliced onion
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 bay leaves
1/2 cup white vinegar
8 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
Cocktail Sauce

* Note: We suggest using male blue crab. Although they are more costly,
they are cleaner and more meaty than the female.

Use a large stock pot with a steamer tray (if no steamer tray you can
elevate a large plate or platter on top of several cups or juice glasses).
Just be sure the plate, which will hold the crabs, is above the liquid.

Place beer, onion, garlic, bay leaves, vinegar and 2 tablespoons Old Bay
Seasoning in the stock pot. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Place
crabs, belly-side down, in the steamer tray (or on the plate). Sprinkle
with remaining Old Bay Seasoning. Cover and steam on high heat 15
minutes. Remove from pot and serve with extra Old Bay Seasoning and
Cocktail Sauce.
