Fresh steamed crab

Corn on the cob

Butter, melted

Seasoning to taste (parsley, lemon, Old Bay seafood seasoning, salt, pepper)



Take a large stock pot and fill with water a quarter of the way up.

Add a few dashes of Old Bay seafood seasoning and a few generous pinches of salt.

Place the crabs and corn into the pot and cover.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium.  Continue cooking for another 15 to 18 minutes or until the crabs are steamed through.

Strain the water from the pot by securing the lid and allowing water to drain through a small opening.

Pour the crab and corn onto a picnic table covered with newspaper.  Serve with butter and a cold beverage.

Bon appétit.
