Cooking Louisiana - Homemade Crab Shells

Stuffed crabs need a shell right? Well. we don't all get fresh crabs to get the shells. Many of us just buy crab meat then have to figure out what we're going to do with it. You can make a simple fake or artificial crab shell that will work just fine using Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil. It only takes a minute or so to make one, and, when you're done with them just pitch em' in the trash.

Here we go....
