Crab is very delectable. Cooking it in plain water is enough to enjoy this very flavorful food. After eating, the leftover things are shells and small legs. Please do not throw them away. They can still be used to flavor other dishes. Set them aside. Big claws have tasty meat. Its a good idea to store them for later use together with the small legs.
