Crabs are one of the most delicious critters on earth. Their sweet and delicate meat is often imitated, but that stuff is for the birds. I'll take my crab meat in lump form or boiled freshly for me in the shell. I have fond memories of crabs including catching them at the beach and winning an eating competition in Alaska. You really just can't go wrong with crabs!

Of course, every region has their own way of preparing crabs. In Louisiana the preferred method for cooking them whole is to boil them in a spicy bath much like we do with our crawfish. In places like Maryland and Delaware, crabs are steamed then doused on the outside with seasoning like Old Bay. What's your favorite cooking method?
