About CrabPlace.com crabs—In 1989, the Maryland Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun) was designated the State Crustacean. Its name honors Mary Jane Rathbun, the scientist who described the species in 1896. The blue crab's scientific name translates as "beautiful swimmer that is savory."
Blue crab meat is sometimes compared to lobster meat, the flavor best appreciated by cracking and eating steamed hardshells. Crabs are prepared in restaurants and in home kitchens, steamed or sauteed, as Maryland crab cakes and Crab Imperial, or in crab soup and crab dip.

Make sure the shells are all tightly closed. If the shells are gaping slightly, tap the clam and it should close. If it doesn't, it's dead and must be thrown away. Clams should be stored in the bottom of your refrigerator where they will keep for 2 days. To prepare, drop the clams in a few inches of boiling water or stock, butter, chopped parsley, a cup of white wine, and a pinch of salt. When the shells open, remove them from the liquid and serve immediately with a bit of the liquid spooned overtop. For more recipes, please refer to Crab Place recipes section.
