|Here's what I do:
-Get steamer ready
-Preheat oven to 450
-Melt butter (I like using a lot), add some EVOO, squeeze in lemon (I like using a lot again), add minced garlic (I like using a lot again), dash of sea salt, pepper, fresh chives, dill, cilantro if that's your thing (all ingredients are based on your taste)
-Steam Dungie halfway through before it's fully cooked (just takes a few min).
-Clean crab (de-shell it, halve it, crack the legs, etc.)
-Toss crab(s) in large bowl and pour the butter sauce over it. Mix very well so that the sauce gets in the little cracks
-Roast in oven for about 7-8 min or until the garlic is somewhat roasted.
-Serve with baguettes and you're in heaven (use the leftover drippings as a dipping sauce)
I haven't made this since last year... Looks like I'm going to have to make some again SOON!
Also works great with Alaskan King Crabs. I also have an Asian style deep fried crab recipe that was on SF Gate a few years ago. Very tasty as well.
mmmmm, i feel my arteries clogging already, sounds like i'm going to have to try it, perhaps with lobsters.... hmmmm
