Crab Legs/Claws with Two Sauces

There's nothing quite like Dungeness crab or Alaskan king crab; light, sweet, firm, succulent, fresh and simply irresistible. They're great when served chilled with cocktail sauce or garlic butter, or steamed and accompanied by a delicious homemade sauce. These two choices for steaming hot crab are well worth the effort and make great appetizers. Recipe courtesy of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.
