Cooked Dungeness crab can be reheated in boiling water. The reheating process should be kept brief so that they crab meat doesn't become tough or tasteless.
- Boil water
Fill a large pan with enough water to completely submerge the crab. Put the pan on the stove top and heat it until the water is boiling.
- Reheat the crab
Gently place the crab in the boiling water. Allow no more than two or three minutes for it to reheat.
- Remove the crab from the heat
Using a pair of kitchen tongs, remove the crab from the water. Place it on a paper towel and allow it to drain and cool.
