I too use my cleaver.

I have been a big crab eater since I was a boy and never heard of a crab mallet until now.

SOP in Baltimore, where I grew up. Wooden jobs, very handy for other kitchen tasks.

A symphony of mallets? Just go to a crab restaurant, mallets getting banged on the table for every birthday. Terrible noise!

I didn't know crabs were a vegetable. I swear the place I tried was Brenneke's but now it only appears in Hawaii. They rolled out a fresh layer of brown butcher paper and dumped a bucket of crabs right on the table.

That's how they did it in B'more. You put on a napkin that's the size of a bed sheet, brown paper or newspaper on the table, then a dumped pile of steamed crabs seasoned with Old Bay.

I never ate them, but I was dragged along to many of these events.

I just used a dish or anything hard at hand

They were delicious, I rigorously used this recipe except for the tamarind, which I couldn't find in my supermarket and was too late to go to an specieliced shop.

I tried both almonds and peanuts, I prefer almonds! Tastes much better despite the deviation from the original recipe.

I can imagine the noise but still never seen a crab mallet. At our crab restaurans they saw a little nick into the legs and give you nut crackers and a metal pick.

I have a wood meat pounder same as the pic but I don't use it as it's not hardy enough. I use a much sturdier unit that resemble a croquet mallet.

Yup, you can use many different nuts in place of peanuts.

Actually I don't bother going to a restaurant if I want crab. Not may know how to cook it. Very often they will simply boil it whole and put it on a plate. Such a waste.
