    Started on Thursday caught 9 crabs only,but they were good size Jersey Blue Claws


    Boiled for 6 minutes



    Wive picked the meat out for the stuffing


    stuffing mix


    all sauteed together then the crab added when it cooled


    Stuffed back into the top shell



    had some extra so Wive made Wontons




    Made the batter for the Crabs


    Coat the stuffed crab


    Fry in oil


    Make them brown on the out side


    I know their will not be a money shot of these,so here is a Wonton


    Thanks for looking

    EDIT:: I was typing her earlier and lost my connection.

    You are my new bestest buddy!

    Those look great and the stuffing perfect with not too much bell pepper..... Oh yes.

    There must be something wrong with my computer, I can't quite make out that recipe.

    Its bleau crab time here also, do you like grilled? ZOMG!!!!!

    Pull the back shell and the lower apron, clean the inside, baste with a bit of butter, garlic and lemon. I oft time have just done a quick clean, then on a stick (like a hotdog) and a bit of "Cajun Power". Build a little fire and do that while out flounder gigging..... throw in a ice cold beer.... I really expect heaven to be quit similar, like I'll ever see it....LOL

     Oh yeah, "Cajun Power" should be on every shelf next to the "Tony's". Amazon carries it if you shop at a limited grocery.

  11. Looks like some meaty #2's. Granny made these several times a week. We would cull out jumbo's and one would fill you up. Rewards of working for the families seafood business.

    Kevin thanks for the point and the reminder,I didn't realize I did not post it.I never did grill them but that is a good idea,and to stay bestest buddy.

    This recipe I put some shrimp 

    STUFFED CRABS

    2 dozen blue claw crabs
    (clean, wash & save the top shell)
    10 jumbo shrimps (peeled and chopped) This is optional
    1 onion (diced)
    2 garlic cloves (diced)
    2 medium large tomatoes (diced)
    1 can white potatoes (diced)
    1 egg
    salt & pepper 

    For batter: egg, milk, flour & bread crumbs (thick enough to cover the crab meat mixture)

    Boil crabs, pick all the meat out  
    Saute onion, garlic then add tomatoes, cook for 2 minutes, then add the potatoes, cook for 1 minute
    Add shrimps, cook for 1  minute (This is optional)
    Then add the crab meat after everything has cooled a little.
    Let it cool, then add the egg as a binder, salt & pepper.
    Stuff the top shell with the crab meat mixture, make the batter coat mixture
    In a large skillet heat 1/2  inch olive oil.  
    Spoon the batter coat mixture on top of the crab meat mixture to cover it.
    Place the crabs batter side down, fry until its golden brown
    Enjoy.

    Extra filling can be used to make pot stickers

    Thanks again Richie
