Though firmly situated in “lobster country,” Cape Cod is the northernmost range of the blue crab. Being easily accessible, and totally delicious, blue crabs are one of OTW Cooking Columnist Andy Nabreski’s favorite summertime targets.
In this episode of Living Off The Land and Sea, Andy heads out after dark to gather enough blue crabs for a summer afternoon feast.
When crabbing at night, Andy leaves the traps and bait at home, and instead uses a spotlight and a dip net to catch these tasty crustaceans.
Afterwards, Andy shows how to clean, cook, and pick the blue crabs in order to get the most meat out of these delicious crabs.
