What is the best way to eat crab legs...here's my method
I just ate some crab legs. I love crab legs but they are a pain to get the meat out of .

These are the tools I use.

1. Nutcracker to crack the leg segments in half.....like sideways.

2. Smallish scissors to cut up the length each segment of leg.....long ways.

and most importantly

3. Tweezers I use to thread my serger sewing machine. I use it to grab the meat out of the leg and get into the all the smaller cracks.

I've never found those little crab and lobster forks very effective.

My system works pretty good but I'm always trying to improve things. What's your method? Or do you forgo crab legs and all the hassle it takes to eat them and go for easy-peasy shrimp? Tongue

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Depends on the type of crab. If it's King Crab, I use the nutcracker thing and the little fork. For Dungeness I crack the long segment by hand and carefully slide one end free of the meat, then pull the whole section free from the other side.
If that makes any sense.

In Maryland you are only permitted to use the tools provided by the crab itself as a matter of respect to the crab.

Agree with girly. No tools necessary, but on the rare occasion you need to poke out a chunk of meat, the crab has plenty of pointy bits.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
