The steamed Maryland blue crabs were caught in the Patuxent River in front of my house, and they're paired with a grilled venison tenderloin, mac-and-cheese, and mixed vegetables. I usually don't eat anything else with crabs, but these were leftover from the night before so we had them with the venison. I didn't notice until I saw the pictures, but the newspaper headline is a reminder of how dangerous it is in the Chesapeake Bay. That story was from spring rockfish opener where two boats sank. Also if you don't know why the paper is on the table you've never eaten blue crabs.
