Now that September is just around the corner, it is time to start preparing for that beautiful Maryland tradition of throwing a crab feast to celebrate Labor Day. The following is helpful advice to get you ready.
Below is a checklist of what you’ll need for hosting a Labor Day Crab Feast.
- Buckets (for shell disposal)
- Cocktail sauce
- Cold beer
- Crab knives (sharp to pry crab’s apron and reach meat in tough spots)
- Craft paper or newspaper (table lining)
- Finger food (burgers, chicken strips, hot dogs)
- Iced tea or lemonade
- J.O. Spice
- Melted butter
- Old Bay (mix with apple cider vinegar for dipping)
- Paper towels
- Water bowls (to clean fingers)
This should be easy. Set up two picnic tables in the backyard and cover them with craft paper or newspaper.
This will make the cleanup easy. If there is a bit of kid artistry in your household, give them the task of adding color with crayons or collages to the coverings.
You may opt for a couple of layers because tidying up mid-meal might be needed to eliminate crab shells. Picking crab can get messy.
Star of the Show
The top menu item will be the event’s star, so getting this right is essential. You will probably be fine by picking up a bushel of blues at the seafood market and then slaving over a stove. However, you can make it easy this year. You might not have the time or energy to do the cooking. Let the experts at The Crab Shack steam the crab for your feast.
Lovers of fat, juicy crab and excellent seafood don’t have to drive to Baltimore, Ocean City, Hooper’s Island, or Annapolis anymore. Stay close to home and enjoy incredible deliciousness all year round at the two locations below!
