Foods to Serve at a Crab Feast

Food/Cooking - Dinner

Introduction:Although it might be cold and snowy outside today, dreams of Chesapeake Bay blue crab feasts this summer are already rolling around my head. The below are some of my favorite foods to serve at a crab feast along with cold frosty beer, of course!

  • 01

    Shrimp

    It's always a great idea to serve bowls of steamed shrimp along with the blue crabs at a crab feast. Add small bowls of cocktail sauce which you can easily make yourself by mixing horseradish and ketchup. Add a bit of Old Bay Seafood Seasoning and you've got yourself a delicious dipping sauce for peeled shrimp.

    Any kind of seafood actually makes a good accompaniment for a crab feast. Fry up some fish and serve on paper plates - flounder is particularly delicious. Add some tartar sauce in small bowls for dipping.

  • 02

    Corn

    No crab feast is complete without juicy ears of fresh corn. For the best flavor, visit your local farmer's market or small carts on the side of the road. Select white corn which is less starchy and sweeter than the standard yellow corn variety.

  • 03

    Coleslaw or Potato Salad

    Bowls of cold coleslaw and/or potato salad are great side dishes for a crab feast. Since you and your guests might be sitting for a few hours picking crabs, make sure that the bowls with the cold slaw or potato salad are nestled in ice so that the mayonnaise does not go bad.

  • 04

    Cornbread

    Cornbread is a delicious accompaniment to a crab feast but, beware: there's no sense filling up on cornbread, no matter how delicious it may be when there are fresh steamed crabs to go around. If you've got a pig who is chowing down on more than his fair share of crabs, surround his seat with the side dishes and particularly cornbread to fill him up.

  • 05

    French Fries

    This is another good side dish for a good old fashioned crab feast but I personally will never touch a french fry when there's crabs sitting on the table or in the pot. Dust fresh french fries with a bit of Old Bay and serve with dipping glasses full of vinegar.




Final Thoughts

There's nothing quite like a good Chesapeake Bay blue crab feast to wile away an afternoon with good friends. Crabs are quite delicious and easy to eat once you master the techniques of getting the meat from the shells.
