How to Cook Mud Crabs

Wash the mud crabs thoroughly.

Place live green mud crabs into ICE SLURRY for 35 Minutes in a container or bin, or in the freezer for 35 minutes. They go to sleep and die.

Bring pot with a good handful of salt to the boil.

Place Mud crabs in pot.

Bring to BOIL again and then cook for 22 minutes.

In another container or bin add another 3 handfuls of salt to the ice slurry

Once cooked, place mud crabs into this and when cool, clean them in the slurry water. This way the FLAVOUR with salt stays within the mud crab.

Serve on a platter and enjoy!
