You will find the recipe at the bottom of this post. 

If you love crabs, there’s nothing more savory and delicious than fried blue stone crabs in red sauce over pasta. Once the fall weather hits, we love cooking more savory meals on the stove now that’s its cooling down. Today, I prepared a recipe that’s so mouth-watering good, everyone will love it. 

The aroma of garlic and seafood fills the house as we patiently waited for the pasta to boil. While this recipe is perfect all year round, it’s especially delicious this time of year. 

It starts out with live fresh crabs from the fish market! My hubby is a seafood fanatic and this recipe is one of his favorites! I store them in the fridge for a few hours before cooking. If you love seafood dishes, you must try our Shrimp Scampi recipe. It’s so good, you’ll make it every week!

They have to be cleaned well and prepped for cooking first. 

Start by giving them a good wash in the sink.

Then, pull out the outer shell. You can pull that off entirely and discard.

You also have to pull off the back-end of the shell to reveal the insides and clean that part well by removing all loose internals.

They are not that difficult to clean. You can easily see what needs to be removed.

Once fully cleaned, your crabs should look like this.

And the frying process begins with freshly cleaned and seasoned blue crabs.

You can eat them fried too without the sauce if you prefer. They are so good just as is as well.

Frying the crabs up with seasoning gives them, even more, flavor.

Be sure to flip the crabs over while frying them at least twice to make sure they are nice and brown in color.

Once your crabs are clean, set aside and start the sauce. There’s always fresh garlic!

You can see a difference in the consistency of the sauce after it’s been cooking for over an hour. Delicious and ready to go! Time to boil the water for the pasta. You can use any type of pasta you like, we like it with thin spaghetti!
