How to reheat steamed crabs— Put the steamed crab in a pot with about 2 inches of water. For added flavor, add about a cup of vinegar or beer. Reheat them for no more than 8 minutes, over the boiling water. Also, use a rack at the bottom of the pot to lay the crabs on, to help them reheat well. You can also reheat previously steamed blue crab in the microwave. Place a damp paper towel over them to keep them moist and cook on high for 1 to 2 minutes or warm them in the oven for approximately 10 minutes at 375 degrees. ENJOY!
How many crabs should I order for each person?
If steamed crabs will be served along with other food, about six crabs per person. If you will be eating crabs solely as your main course, then you can plan for approximately eight to a dozen crabs per person. Generally, a bushel of large sized crabs can feed about eight persons. * Please keep in mind that these numbers are "approximate" and are intended to help you determine a ballpark number of crabs to order.
