Blue Crab Pasta Sauce

jmax | Sep 13, 2007 06:05 AM

I was down at the pier last weekend and started talking to a guy fishing. He had 4 blue crabs he had caught. I asked him what he was going to do with them - he said put them in a red sauce over pasta. I've been thinking about it ever since. How do you do this? Do you just make a traditional marinara sauce and simmer the crabs in it. How long? What kind of cleaning do you have to do with the crabs? Do you eat the crabs or are they just a flavoring agent? If you eat teh crabs - any tips on making them easier to eat - they can be pretty messy. I haven't found much on the web - a couple of recipes that didn't offer much info. Any other books or resources anyone would reccommend where I can find out more about this pasta sauce would be appreciated. Thanks.
