A short pictorial guide to buying a live crab for this recipe. Dungeness Crab season runs until June, but the best-tasting crabs are available in the winter months.


Find a market that sells live crab.


Pick out a lively (not half-dead) specimen.


Cook the crab in boiling, heavily salted water for 3-5 minutes.


Plunge crab into bowl of ice water to halt cooking process, and chill so you can handle to clean.


Clean crab and break into pieces. Follow instructions in Wendy’s illustration for marinating and grilling the crab.


Our favorite crab-friendly wine of the moment – cheers!
