Baked Crab in Shell

I love crab and crabbing in Galveston. My Aunt Elsie taught me how to catch crabs with a chicken neck and a string when I was a child. After we would get the crabs she would cook them. Mostly she would boil them so if I wanted stuffed crab I would have to go to a restaurant or buy them frozen at the supermarket. I found that the supermarket stuffed crab was too bready for my taste and at the restaurant that they cost too much. So I learned how to make them at home.
