Thumbs up Jerry's Seafood in Bowie, MD.

I don't know how often any of you may get into the eastern Washington D.C. area, specifically Bowie, MD, but if you do and you love seafood, you HAVE to stop in at Jerry's Seafood. It's located at 15211 Major Lansdale Blvd. near the intersection of route 179 and route 50. They have a dish called the "Crab Bomb", which is to kill for. Now I doubt there are many people more picky than I am about blue crab meat dishes, and I was really blown away by the CRAB BOMB (pun intended). Connie ordered the same dish and she was equally impressed with it. Matter of fact, we're trying to figure out a real good reason to run up that way again, just to stop in there to have dinner. It was purely a fluke that we even found the place, because we stayed at the Hampton Inn pretty much next door to the place and just happened to spot it.

Now this is pretty early in the season to be getting really good crab meat, so quite honestly, we REALLY need to find a reason to get up there in late Summer or early Fall when the blue crabs are at their best in Maryland. Yumm......

I grew up there, in Glen Burnie, used to go to Bowie all the time. I refuse to eat Blue Crabs unless I'm in Maryland, crab cakes,...anything (ok..minus crab dips, it's hard to mess those up). I miss getting some fresh Crab Bisque.

If you ever go through or around Detroit I can tell you some fantastic Coney Island Chili places to hit up.

Yeah, we steam our own crabs here when we can get the live blue crabs and that works out fine. Connie can also make OUTSTANDING crabcakes. She's going to take a stab at making her own CRAB BOMBS when she can get a couple of pounds of the jumbo lump crabmeat at the local market in Panacea (MyWay Seafood).

With that oil spill, I'm thinking that fresh local Florida seafood is going to become rather scarce real soon.

Hey Rich,

I steam my own crabs down here in Ft. Myers too! I have a couple of sources in this area, so getting blue crabs is not too difficult. There is one place in N. Ft. Myers that steams them, but they have no clue on the seasoning. So, I just do it myself with Old Bay and rock salt. We may have moved from the Maryland area, but I will never get steamed crabs out of my system!

Rich

The steaming liquid I use is a blend of water, vinegar and beer. My daughter eats them by dipping the meat into vinegar and then rubbing the old bay and rock salt off the shell. Since I use a LOT of seasoning on the crabs, I have plenty on my hands while eating that will make your lips tingle. I have tried the vinegar, but prefer the natural taste of the crab meat with the seasonings.

BTW Rich, typically what are you paying for live crabs up there? Lately, I can usually get number ones (6 inches or better, point to point) down here for around $35 a dozen. Under 6 inches for around $25.

Haven't gotten any this year yet, but last year the price was $9 per dozen.... Mixed sizes and mixed sexes.

You guys are making me hungry for Crabs and it's still breakfast time. I use to eat steamed crabs in New Orleans back in my dental school days in the 80's. Nothing like a plate of crabs with some cold beer.
I like the Vinegar, Beer, Bay seasoning, and rock salt recipe. What proportions are you using per dozen crabs?
