How to Steam a Crab

Ingredients

Directions

Get a black steamer. Put crabs in water. Add seasoning. Put more crabs on top. Let them steam for 40 minutes. When you put them in they are blue-green, but wait until their shells are orange-red and their bellies turn white. Then you can take them out, they're ready to eat.
