How To Cut and Clean
Tips : Instead of piece through the centre of the crab, you may leave the crab in the icy cold water or freezer for 20 - 60 minutes to knock them out (hibernate) for easier cutting and cleaning.
Step 1: Pierce through the centre of the crab with a knife or scissors. Make sure you use enough strength for a clean kill.
Step 2: Remove the string off from the crab.
Step 3: Apply pressure under the crab’s head to split it open. Be careful as the shell is quite sharp.
Step 4: Remove the inedible mouth piece.
Step 5: Remove the inedible heart too.
Step 6: Remove the inedible gills known as “Dead man’s fingers”. Peel it all out.
Step 7: Rinse and scrub the crab back and forth with water thoroughly. Clean off any visible mud and dirt on the shell.
Step 8: Cook the crab either follow our recipes or your preferred method. Lastly enjoy the freshly prepared delicious crab dish together with your friends and family!
