Louisiana vs Maryland crab recipes

It’s the peak of crab season, which means the crabs are plentiful and delicious! The difference between crabs found in Louisiana vs. crabs found in Maryland?

Gulf coast male crabs are 16% heavier than Atlantic Coast crabs, and Gulf Coast female crabs are 20% heavier. Sometimes in the off season in Maryland, a mixture of crabs are served in restaurants, from Maryland but also Louisiana and the Carolinas, and most people probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

The USDA’s Dietary Guidelines last year encouraged Americans to eat at least 8 ounces of seafood per week, but most are not eating that much.  It’s easy to find a restaurant serving fresh Louisiana seafood in our neck of the woods, but it’s also actually fairly simple to prepare seafood at home.  If you’re looking to introduce your family to seafood, we’ve got a few pointers.  Here are some of our favorite easy Summer Seafood grilling recipes!
