Spicy Hot Mess Crab 🦀 Legs with garlic, butter & parsley

Spicy Hot Mess Crab 🦀 Legs

If garlic bread and crab boil had a baby, this would surely be it! Sweet dungeness crab gets tossed in the classic garlic bread mixture — garlic, butter, and parsley — and served with crusty bread to soak up any extra butter. It is a bit messy, but feel free to use the bread as a tasty napkin!

Spicy Hot Mess Crab Legs with Garlic, Butter, and Parsley

★★★★★

Seafood

INGREDIENTS

3 to 4 Dungeness crab clusters, thawed

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 large garlic cloves, minced

¼ to ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Kosher salt

½ lemon

Crusty bread for serving and dipping

DIRECTIONS

SEPARATE CRAB

Separate the crab legs from the body. Using a sturdy knife cut the bodies in half.

STEAM CRAB

Place the crab into a wok or skillet with 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Cover and steam just until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain well and wipe out the pan.

STIR-FRY

Return the pan to medium-high heat and add the butter, oil, garlic, and as much red pepper flakes as desired, and sauté just until sizzling. Add the crab, parsley, and a pinch of salt, and stir-fry until coated with the sizzling mixture. Transfer to a deep platter, scraping all of the butter and aromatics on top and add a squeeze of lemon. Serve right away with claw crackers, bread, and lots of napkins. Dip the crab meat and bread into the surrounding butter and enjoy!
