How to Steam Crabs and Other Seafoods
Use the process below to steam crabs, as well as lobsters and other seafoods.
Crabs, clams, lobster, and other seafoods should be steamed in a large steampot with a basket to hold the seafood above the water.
How Long to Steam: Crab steaming time varies, depending upon the size of the pot, amount of crabs, whether they are live or frozen, and heating source. In general, steam crabs for at least 20-30 minutes. The top of the shells will be orange when they are done.
