Went to TJ Lobster for my monthly Lobster fix. They have Golden Crabs from Florida. We'll I bought two and truthfully I don't know anything about them or how to cook them. Please help.

    1. Golden crabs don't have much meat. Steam them the way you would steam any crab, not for long. The meat is very flavorful, but thin and watery. I'm not getting them again.

      1. Why did you title your thread 'Lobster' when you are seeking help about crabs?

        1. Chop them up (live or partially frozen) marinate them in garlic and salt for a bit and then pan fry them with butter.
