Butter garlic crab recipe
This dish is semi difficult but the result is O so delectable. I had something like this at Crustaceans in San Francisco and searched until I found this similar sounding dish. They used the wonderful dungeness crab, but here in VA I had to settle for blue crab, which turned out just as delicious.
