Blue Crab Boil

12 blue crabs
4 tbsp old bay seasoning
a pot full of water
2 tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
2 potatoes, quartered
1 yellow onion, quartered
4 ears of corn
3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
2 lemons, halved


Fill a large pot with water. Add old bay seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir in onion, lemon, garlic, potatoes, and corn. Bring to a boil. Cook for 5-7 minutes. Remove the corn and check the potatoes. If done, remove.

Rinse the crab in the sink with cold water. Add the crab one by one into the pot of boiling water. Cook for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and cover the pot for 20-30 minutes so that the crab can absorb the spicy flavor. Drain the liquids and serve the veggies and crab on a large platter. Season with a little more old bay seasoning.
