Cooking live dungeness crab question

M_and_H | Dec 5, 2011 08:55 AM

Since dungeness crab are currently in season here in the bay area, we were thinking to purchase a few and simple steam it to accentuate the natural taste and freshness of the crab. A couple of questions.

1. Should we clean the crab first prior to putting it into the freezer to put it to sleep? If yes, do we just run it under tap water?
2. Anyone have any great dipping sauce recipes? Anyone know how to make the sauce they serve with steamed/boiled seafood when we order at the good chinese restaurants?

Thank you
