DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 500*.
  • In a very large oven-proof bowl, place butter and olive oil.
  • Put in oven to melt butter and heat bowl (the bowl needs to be hot when you add the crab).
  • Break crab legs apart from body, and break body into 2 sections per crab, but do not remove meat from shell.
  • Stir crab into hot butter and olive oil mixture; sprinkle in minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Toss everything together well.
  • Bake for 6 minutes and toss well again.
  • Bake another 6 minutes, until crab is heated through and garlic is light brown.
  • Remove from oven and top with lemon juice and parsley; toss again.
  • 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.
