1 gallon water
1 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
2 lemons, halved
1 Jalapeno; halved
1 head Garlic; halved
3 fresh thyme sprigs
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons crab boil
3 pounds blue crabs
3 bunches green onions
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 quart chicken stock
salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste


In a large pot, combine the water, onions, celery, lemons, jalapenos, garlic head, thyme, bay leaves, and Crab Boil. Season the water with salt and pepper. Bring the liquid up to a boil. Add the blue crabs and cook for about 15 minutes.

Remove the crabs from the water and cool in a bowl of ice water. Cool the crabs for about 5 minutes and remove from the water.

In a saucepan, combine the green onions, garlic, and chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the liquid up to a simmer. Cook the liquid for 10 minutes.

Remove the sauce from the heat. Using a hand-held blender, puree the sauce until smooth. Strain the sauce through a fine mesh strainer. Re-season with salt and pepper if needed. Pile the crabs on a platter and serve with the dipping sauce.
