There have been so many requests for crab recipes and advice about dealing with it live, that I have made a separate section.
There is a huge debate on the best way to deal with live.
I couldn't possibly tear a live one apart as some people do - there's loads of videos on youtube showing this and I don't really like the thoughts of it.
I often buy them pre-cooked and dress them myself, but I will sometimes buy them live and cook them.
There are instructions for dressing and cooking live crab here.
I don't want any hate mail from the crustacean liberation front please!
