Recipe from: Linton's Seafood
Servings: 4 to 6

Crab meat is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals that are needed for good nutrition. Per 3 ½ ounce serving, a blue or soft crab has 81 calories with 81/100 mgs. cholesterol... The most popular crab, the blue crab, supplies almost 75 percent of the crabs marketed in the United States. Despite its fearsome appearance and aggressive nature, the blue crab is a greatly cherished seafood. Many gourmets prefer the blue crab's sweet meet over all other seafood.
