Due to high demand and lower inventory, all additional promo codes and discounts on heavyweight crabs are no longer active. Thank you.

A rarity in crab supply, our Heavyweights are 7 plus inches. Because these larger crabs tend to suffer a higher mortality rate they must be ordered steamed. **We do our best to fulfill all orders, however, due to the rarity of Heavyweight Crabs if they are not available we will substitute 14 Jumbo Crabs per dozen Heavyweight Crabs ordered.

How to Steam Live Crabs/Re-steam Crabs

When your live crabs arrive it is important that you steam them as soon as possible. Heat a large pot with approximately 2 inches of water on the bottom. Place a rack or steaming basket in the pot to keep the crabs out of the water. Wait until steam is apparent before placing the crabs in the pot. Sprinkle crab seasoning on the crabs to your liking and then cover with a lid. Let the crabs steam for 5 to 10 minutes after steam pushes out from under the lid. The crabs will turn a shade of orange when cooked throughout.  Follow the same steps as above but for less time. Please look at the chart below for recommended steam times.
