First time cleaning crab before cooking
Today I thought I would try cleaning the crab before cooking it and I was a bit surprised at what I saw inside of them. After backing them a few of them had a pinkish colored 'stuff' along the top of the body part. I was able to pinch it off and then rinse it after which there was no sign of it and a few others had what looked like a marble size, blood filled 'thing' near the mouth. Maybe this is common maybe not but it wasn't a very pleasant sight to say the least. In the end they all cleaned up nice and clean but I just can't stop thinking about what the heck that stuff was. Any Ideas?
