It’s soft shell crab season in many parts of the US right now and if you haven’t taken advantage of that yet, I strongly recommend doing so!
Sweet, delicate crab meat is so delicious. It’s also an excellent source of nutrients, protein, and those important Omega 3s. Crab is also a low-risk seafood for mercury — great news!
Now back to the crab boil.
Your family is going to love you for fixing a crab boil for dinner. Involve the children by asking them to lay down a tablecloth of newspapers and to put down a stack of extra napkins.
The kids can also help you with the prep for this meal, no matter what their ages.
Here’s what you need for your basic crab boil: a large pot (maybe two depending on how many people you are feeding), tools for getting the meat out of the crab shells, cold white wine and/or beer.
