Cracked Crab Platter

Cracked Crab Platter Recipe
James Carrier
Notes: Have the crabs cleaned and cracked at the market; ask for the whole back shells to garnish the platter. If assembling up to 4 hours ahead, cover platter with plastic wrap and chill. Provide crab crackers or nut crackers to break shells further, containers to hold discarded shells, and damp towels or bowls of water to clean dirty hands at the table.
