We bought 4 fresh/live rock crabs 2 days ago.. Didn't want them to die in the fridge so we threw them in the freezer because we knew we wouldn't be able to eat them until today. Now I am realizing it was probably the wrong thing to do. Is it still safe to boil and eat them (sacrificing texture and flavor) if they were frozen while still alive?
