Crab with Ammonia Odor Question?

Big Larry | Nov 29, 2006 08:46 PM

i bought some live crabs the other day. the method of cooking was steaming.

after they were finished upon smelling the meat it had a strong odor of ammonia. what is this? what does that mean? were they not fresh?

they didn't taste bad....but the smell was off?
