Ideas for a crab

Kill, cook and pick a crab. Find a youtube video to teach you how to do this, it’s easiest to learn by watching. When picked, you should have a bowl of white meat and a bowl of brown meat. White meat has nice texture, brown meat has nice flavour. Crab meat frezes well so it can be fun to cook a couple at a time and freeze the meat for later use.
