You can purchase live crab, cooked and chilled or frozen crab at many grocery stores. If you are able to purchase cooked cleaned crabs, then this is a super fast and easy appetizer or main course.
If you want a live crab you can boil it at home and then clean it. Once the crab is cooked served chilled with plenty of melted butter. Make sure that you have tools to crack the crab shell and eat the flesh after dipping in melted butter.
