Starting Summer in Style

May 30, 2010

Memorial Day Weekend marks the start of summer, and for anyone in Maryland, summer means blue crabs. Paired with salad and garlic bread, they make a delicious lunch (and anytime I can use a wooden mallet at the table, I’m golden).

With family in town, my parents decided to order in some crabs — and shrimp for good measure. Steamed and seasoned with Old Bay, a Maryland staple that includes paprika, black and red pepper, mustard, celery salt and other spices, they’re messy and difficult to eat, but so worth the trouble!

Note (from 6/8): Per Nila’s request, a long-delayed (my bad!) photo:

Mmmm ... crab.
