How to Make How To Shell a Hair Crab

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 22 steps you must follow to make How To Shell a Hair Crab in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Cut off all the legs except for the claws with the kitchen scissors.
  • Step 2
  • Cut the curved thick part of the legs with the scissors. If you do this all at once you won't have to keep picking up and putting down the scissors several times.
  • Step 3
  • Open up the cut parts. Insert your thumb between the shell and the meat, and take out the meat. Do this with all the legs.
  • Step 4
  • Turn the body over. Open up the triangular part (the "pants") and take it off. (In the photos the "pants" are still on up to Step 7, but...)
  • Step 5
  • Insert your right thumb in the hole left by removing the "pants". Hold onto the shell from below, insert your left thumb in the hole too and pull up.
  • Step 6
  • Then the shell and shoulder will pop right off.
  • Step 7
  • Here is how it looks when the shell and shoulder have come off. If there is water in the shell, throw it out so that the brown meat doesn't get diluted.
  • Step 8
  • The triangle and the thin little bits shown in the photo aren't edible, so pull them off and discard them.
  • Step 9
  • This is how it looks after the inedible parts have been taken off in Step 8.
  • Step 10
  • Hold onto the base of the legs with both hands (although just one hand is shown in the photo) and break it apart in the middle.
  • Step 11
  • The brown part on the left top is brown meat too. Scoop it out using chopsticks or a spoon, and add it to the brown meat in the shell.
  • Step 12
  • Here's how it looks with the brown meat removed.
  • Step 13
  • Holding onto the base on the legs on the opposite side from the claws, break them off following the direction of the meat.
  • Step 14
  • Break all the legs off.
  • Step 15
  • Here's how it looks after the right side legs have been broken off.
  • Step 16
  • Do the same to the left side legs. Maybe it's easier to do the left side first?
  • Step 17
  • Here's how it looks with all the parts broken apart.
  • Step 18
  • Holding on to the hard part of a leg...
  • Step 19
  • Peel off the thin skin.
  • Step 20
  • Pull the meat with your right hand.
  • Step 21
  • The shoulder meat will come out in a lump. Do the same to all the legs. When you get used to it, the meat will come off without having to peel the thin skin.
  • Step 22
  • The meat removed from the shell is on the upper right in the photo. The leg shells are on the top left. Below are the crab shell with the brown meat, claws and joints.
