In this sense, the profile as a can opener is perfect for slipping into the carapace and therefore allows the crustacean to be opened with precision and limited effort, while the antennas can be eliminated through the hole on the blade.Here are some secrets to choose crabs and to cook them easily: first of all the best crabs are the males, which you can recognize from the smaller and pointed abdominal wing. It is advisable to choose intermediate size crabs, because those that are too large have a more fibrous and difficult to cook flesh, and small ones have little. To cook the crab just rinse it under running water and then boil for about 5 minutes in salted water or fish broth. Then, with the help of a knife, lift the abdomen and eliminate the gills, lungs and stomach of the crab, leaving instead the white pulp and the creamy part. And of course don't forget to open the claws with the special pliers, because they are full of exquisite pulp and finally use the Wusthof laid knife to enjoy the pulp and enjoy your meal.
