I’m going to steam some crab today (thanks neighbor!) but I want to make sure I do it right. How much salt, and what kind of salt, do you add per gallon?
I would throw in the lemons after after squeezing the juice, lot of volatile oils that will easily vaporize in steam. Lemon and butter is a no brained. Haven’t done that but I will be trying it.No salt. Lemon juice and some old bay.18 minutes steam then ice bath to stop the cooking
