Most people recognize blue claw crab in a red cooked color. This is how I remember them while growing up. We had saltwater lagoons dividing all the roads in our town so each backyard had access to the tidal waterways. Which meant great crabbing, if the adults caught one with no claws we were allowed to play with them. I once played with a 1" crab with claws thinking it was so small it would be safe. It wasn't. It pinched my finger and boy could it leave a lasting impression. I still recall how painful it felt.
