Roasted Dungeness Crab Recipe



1 Whole Live Dungeness Crab (depending upon the size, we suggest one crab per person)

For those that do not want to live cook get one from our fish market already cooked, cracked and cleaned.

For Sauce

2 TBS..................................Butter
1/2 tbsp..............................Shallots (minced)
4 clove................................garlic minced
2 Tbls..................................Olive Oil
1..........................................Lemon
1/4 cup................................dry white wine
1/2 tspn...............................tarragon
1 Tbls..................................chopped parsley
To Taste...............................Fresh Lemon juice

Cook live crab for 8 minutes per lb.
Preheat oven to 400
Remove from water and let cool enough to handle
While crab is cooling start your sauce in a large sauté pan
On medium heat add olive oil, garlic, shallots and Butter. Sauté until garlic and shallots start getting soft, add tarragon, white wine, fresh cracked pepper (to taste)
After sauce begins to reduce add your lemon juice. Reduce heat to low.
Take the top off of the crab and add the butter from the cap to your sauce.
Remove and discard the gills and clean knuckles under water to remove any excess body matter. Cut into quarters.
Remove legs and crack with a kitchen hammer or tenderizer.
Put crab in a roasting pan with a lid. Add sauce, cover and let roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove and serve with cap on top for display.

To avoid the live crab cooking process we will cook, crack and clean your crab. Then all you do is prepare the sauce, add crab and roast.

Don't forget the garlic bread!
