Are the crab legs raw? Here we buy whole crab either already cooked or live.I’ve steamed crab legs several times. Only had one time they turned out perfect. I forgot to time them and just pulled them out of the steamer. Any tip later on how to do this with great results.
My research says you have one particular species of crab which is eaten - the Paddle crab. Have you never eaten crab?No help here we don't have cooking type crabs here, lots of crayfish though.
Crab 'em and eat 'emCrab is caught commercially in the Nelson bays area throughout the year. Aqua Fresh (a local company) catches between 18 and 23 tonnes of crab a year and supplies supermarkets throughout New Zealand.
I've never seen a crab in the shops in all the time I've been going. We do import some but I've never seen any. Ones I've seen at beaches etc are no more than 2 inches big.
