Overview

Every crab connoisseur relishes the pleasure of sitting down to a delectable meal of hard or soft shell crabs. Many, however, thing crab is a dish best enjoyed in a restaurant, prepared by a trained chef. For the past twenty years, Cy and Pat Liberman's The Crab Cookbook: Hot to Catch and Cook Crabs has shown crab lovers that they need not be deprived of their favorite food in their own homes. Now, in this revised and expanded edition, the authors make it even easier for experienced and amateur crab cooks—and eaters—to buy, prepare, and even catch their own crabs! This detailed guide, which now covers all American varieties of crab, explains what to look for and what to watch out for when purchasing crabs. For those who prefer to catch their own, the Libermans share tips on everything from the best bait to the laws that govern crab catching throughout the U.S. They describe the intracacies of "crab picking" or getting all the meat out of the crab, the best accompaniments to a crab dish, and various cooking methods—even using the microwave! And, of course, as a reward for all that hard work, these crab aficionados provide a wealth of new and updated recipes for hors d'oeuvres, soups, salads, and entrees—all of which are sure to make every home chef and dinner guest agree that crabs are definitely among "the best food the sea offers!"
