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 great sauce of your own making.

These two choices for steaming hot crab are well worth the effort and make great appetizers.
