attie, you can eat the steamed crabs hot or room temperature. Remember that the roe of the female ones are edible.

Well, I bought a batchfull of those mantis shrimps, and I didn't know how to cook them so I just steamed it. (They say most seafood can be steamed!) They turn out to be quite delicious! The meat in the back reminds of lobster meat (not as expensive though!) and is pretty tender. I recommend people to try it out!

It's been a long-long time since I've tasted crab roe. It is illegal to keep female crabs here and the minimum size must be more than 150mm [6"] across the shell.

It's also illegal here in CT to keep crabs less than 5 or 6 in. in length (I think) and during mating season and egg-diploying season where the female crabs are carrying pouches with those yellow-orange eggs. I haven't crabbed for years, there are no good crabbing spot in CT, you never get the good tasting blue crabs.
