Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce for Crab (or Seafood)

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Marla Swoffer

The name pretty much gives away the recipe, but this is the my favorite way to eat fresh crab (and most other seafood). Be sure to have crusty french bread on hand to soak up the excess. Adjust amounts to your taste.
