    Northwest Lynnie's Note:

    Crustacean restaurants in CA are famous for their garlicky roasted crab, which is a highly guarded secret recipe. This recipe is a great substitute. I especially like to make it on a cold day, and it ranks high on my all-time favorite recipes list.

      Serve from hot bowl with lots of napkins and artisanal French or sourdough bread (such as La Brea Bakery's) to soak up the delicious juices.
