Blue manna crabs are superb eating with a sweet nutty flavour. Crabs are delicious in stir fry and curries and the meat is terrific in pasta dishes or omelettes. Personally a fresh boiled crab sandwich is my favourite. Drop crabs in boiling salted water, time 5 minutes once a rolling boil returns then chill with iced water.

Apart from being cruel and immoral, cooking crabs alive will toughen the meat and cause their legs to drop. Drown in fresh water or comatose in freezer 1st.
