Garlic Crab

Garlic Crab created by jamaicans

This is a simi difficult recipe, but the result is ever so delectable. I had something like this at Crustaceans in San Francisco. They used the wonderful Dungeness crabs, but here in Virginia I had to settle for Blue crabs, which turned out just as nice.

    So easy to make...slight modification add a little water to the pan b/c of some pre seasoning "Tony's/Ol Bay"....helps to steam as well. They were definitely delicious!!

    Do I steam the crab first?

    Really loved this recipe. Used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning instead of red pepper flakes. Just a personal substitution I like. I bet it would have been spectacular with red pepper flake as well.

    I think because of breaking down the blue crabs.

    So sorry you had to hear you had to settle for inferior dungenous crabs and equally inferior Californian seafood. Tried this recipe with the substantially superior Blue Crab here in America's #1 Coastal Area in the Islandic Coastal Carolinas and it turned out really good to my amazement!! Will also be sharing this with those back home in Eastern Shore MD aka the Crab Capital of the World.
