    Our Whole Foods store had dungeness crab on special, and wow, this was a great way to prepare it! We didn't have parsley but used some crushed red pepper. This dungeness crab was better than the ones we had in San Francisco to our amazement. thanks!

    I tried this for New Years Eve dinner and everyone thought the flavor really came through. I roasted just the legs and saved the rest for a crab coconut curry and perhaps some crab cakes. Thanks for an easy and yummy recipe!
