Cooking Instructions

It's crab season here in the San Francisco bay area. Heap and heaps ofluscious Dungeness crabs are showing up all over the place.

Steamed or live++take your pick! I was in Oakland's Chinatown last weekend shopping at the Sam Yick gorcery and saw a couple of boxes of still- kicking Blue crabs for a buck seventy-nine a pound. Good eatin' ahead!

Kill and clean the crab. Place it, top shell down, on a heat- resistant plate. Scatter the onion, ginger and wine on top of the crab. Put the crab and plate into a preheated steamer. steam over high heat for 15 minutes. Remove and cool.

Disjoint and crack the crab and arrange on a platter. Dip the meat into the dipping sauce and eat with green onions and ginger. Use the tip of the leg to dig out the meat.

Serves 2 as a light meal.
