Steamed Blue Crabs......

Live in Virginia on the Potomac River and a number of Watermen catch and cook/stream crabs for sale to the Public. Would like to find a local or a store near Corolla that we could buy a Bushel doing our stay....Thanks.....

They are not hard to find here either, most seafood places have them and will cook them when ordered. I don't buy them up in Corolla so I am not sure where they have them there but you can get them at Carawan's which is at the 3rd traffic light after you cross the bridge to Kitty Hawk.

Address: 5424 N Croatan Hwy, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949

Phone:(252) 261-2120

Dockside in Duck probably has them too.

Like you, we live in blue crab heaven and have certain expectations around how those critters should taste. I don't know why, but I've never gotten satisfactory crabs at the outer banks in the past. We haven't bought any in recent years as a result, but when you get spoiled at home, it's easy to get disappointed elsewhere. That's why I never have crab cake anywhere outside of maryland.

I have lived in Fredericksburg and had Va and Md crabs many many times and the crabs here are not much, if any, different to me. I am sure you could get a bad batch, but some of the best here match those from Md I have had. Ones from the Englehard NC area are worthy opponents.
