    Cooked Dungeness Crab and be enjoyed as Crab Louie or just picking the meat from the shell and dipping into drawn butter. The meat can also be removed and tossed in butter to be eaten over pasta with some of the crab 'fat' from the body.
    While it is best eaten within a day or two, it can freeze well - just remove the legs from the main carapace and freeze for several months. The shells make a fantastic stock that can also be frozen for several months as well.

    If you are refrigerating your cooked crab, try to keep it as cold as you can to maintain the freshness.
