The last few summers have seen a profusion of blue claw crabs (blue crabs) in the lower Connecticut River, and the crew of New England Boating TV was there to take advantage of it!

On a visit to Essex, Parker Kelley and Tom Richardson had a blast catching crabs then shot a segment on how to cook them with Executive Chef Jim Gallagher of the Griswold Inn.

In the accompanying video, Gallagher shows us a simple recipe for making a savory crab boil fit for a king. Lets hope the crabs cooperate again this season!

Watch the full episode on Essex, Connecticut.
