Crab Appetizer (Maryland)

15-30 servings
Crabs are such a part of Maryland life and Maryland way....that a lot of fellow Zaar members from the Maryland, Delaware, and Virgina coast will have a "bucket load" of crab recipes. And all of them are divine! You can fix a different crab dish or appetizer every night of the week for a full year. Crabs are not grown on the farm. But we do have a special supplier to us called, "Gibby's Seafood Market" that sell their steamed crabs from the night before at a reduced rate. Now you have to get there soon in the morning right after they open but those crabs are seasoned with "Old Bay Seasoning" (a staple of Maryland, made in Maryland) and oh so good. Anyway, whenever there is a get together be it Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall there is always a crab dish. This ia a good appetizer to serve, people just grab with their hands and devour, making sure they have licked the last bit off their hands or even plates. Go ahead, try it, I promise there won't be much left for you. Have fun add or subtract whatever you see fit.
