While it is possible to find crabs in other coastal states, there is a unique and memorable experience that comes with enjoying Maryland crabs. Various preferences regarding picking style, seasoning blend, and cooking technique differ. However, one thing agreed upon is the deliciousness and uniqueness of Maryland crabs. Below are a few reasons why crabs are unique to Maryland residents.
What Makes Maryland Crabs So Special
Blue crabs are more commonly known as Maryland crabs. According to research, Maryland waters provide approximately half of the country’s blue crabs. They are essential to Maryland’s culture and heritage, particularly during summer. Blue crabs are distinguished by their delicate texture and depth of flavor.
Crab Picking Techniques
There are numerous methods and procedures for harvesting crabs. Some people use knives and mallets, while others use their teeth. Whatever way you choose to eat Maryland blue crabs, you’ll need lots of space and plenty of paper towels.
The Best Location To Eat Crabs
Many enjoy throwing crab feasts with their family and friends during the summer. Others set up tables covered in newspapers on their lawns, while some employ leased venues.
