Caught, cooked and froze my crab

I froze our Dungeness crabs (after cooking them) guts and all...is this okay?? If so how do I get all the gills and what not out after I defrost them to eat?

Didn't take out the guts??? Smiling...This is perfectly fine! People do it all the time (us included). When it comes time to finally Enjoy! your Dungies, just either fully thaw them out and clean them usual before re-heating them for eating or you can re-boil them for a short time (say 10 min.) and then clean them. We at Crab-O-Licious like to thaw them, clean them and then steam them until hot for serving.....Enjoy those crabs!
