This is a simi difficult recipe, but the result is ever so delectable. I had something like this at Crustaceans in San Francisco. They used the wonderful Dungeness crabs, but here in Virginia I had to settle for Blue crabs, which turned out just as nice.

Steaming is a great cooking method for Maryland blue crab. Not only does it result in tender, succulent flesh, but it also means you can flavor the steaming liquid and this flavor will soak into the crab, giving it a subtle yet very nice taste. The following recipe calls for beer, vinegar, salt and seafood seasoning to act as the steaming liquid, and these flavors are fantastic with the crab.
