Each crab measures exactly 6-6½ inches. The male blue crab is known by watermen as a "Jimmy." Once you've tried the succulent meat from a Maryland Blue crab, you will be hooked forever. Additionally, our crabs can be ordered live or steamed, depending on your preferences.
Customers can only order blue crabs online from Harbour House Crabs while supplies last. Due to market conditions, availability and pricing are subject to change.
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 them with a lid. Let the crabs steam for 5 to 10 minutes after the 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.
