Never buy a
crab without making sure that it is dry inside. To dress a crab, remove
all the claws, then tear the centre apron from the main shell. At the
point between the two big claws where the apron joins the shell is the
mouth. Behind this is a small sac which is the stomach: DISCARD THIS
Around the apron are the feathery grills which are harmless but unsightly. Scrape all the soft brown meat from the shell. Crack the claws and remove all the white meat.
