Live Hard Crabs

When you order live Maryland crabs online from Crab Dynasty, they are caught fresh from the Chesapeake Bay and brought into our docks to be immediately shipped for ultimate freshness. Each hard crab is inspected and selected to ensure only the highest grade of live Maryland Blue crabs shipped. We package each order of live crabs in a special freshness container.
*Please note that the average mortality rate is approximately 10-15% when ordering live Maryland crabs. If this is a concern, then we recommend that you order steamed crabs instead.*

Live Hard Crabs
Preparation
How to Steam Maryland Crabs: Order your live Maryland crabs online and add 1 part water and 1 part apple cider vinegar to a large pot or crab steamer. Bring liquid to a boil. Add live hard crabs to the pot and sprinkling dry Old Bay crab seasoning on each layer. Cover pot and and wait for steam to escape the lid (about 10 mins). Steam the Maryland blue crabs for 20 to 30 minutes more (until crabs turn orange). If shells are dark red or green spots, then crabs are not fully cooked. Remove crabs from the pot and coat lightly with Old Bay seasoning.

Should I order live blue crabs or order steamed crabs?
We do everything that we can to package your live md crabs in containers that will help to keep them alive as long as possible. Unfortunately, some of the crabs don't always make it due to environmental factors such as outdoor temperature, handling of the courier, etc. Upon receiving your order, only consume the live crabs and discard any that are no longer moving. We recommend that you order our crabs already steamed to ensure 100% edibility when your crabs are delivered.
