Recipe for family meals :

Garlic Roasted Crab

This is one of the recipes from Mrs Susie. If you want to find out more about her have a look at her biography page which she has written. Mrs Susie specialises in Oriental cooking.

"This is a great dish to serve family style. The crab is messy, but the flavor is so good everyone will be licking their fingers. One crab per person provides a large meal, so if the crabs are large, figure on three-quarters of a crab per person. Serve with rice or noodles and fresh steamed vegetables and cold beer!".


4 Dungeness crab, cleaned and cracked
1 garlic bulb, minced
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1/2 lb. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1 bunch parsley, one-half chopped
1/2 fresh lemon, sliced


Place butter, salt, red pepper, black pepper, garlic and onion in a roasting pan and place into 500º oven.

Carefully cook until the onion and garlic turn golden brown. Be careful not to burn it.

Remove the pan from the oven and place the cleaned, cracked crab into the pan and mix thoroughly. Make sure all of the crab is coated with sauce.

Place the roasting pan back in the oven at 500 degrees and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Turn crab every 5 minutes or so. Oven temperatures vary, so carefully watch the pan so as not to burn it. The crab should be heated completely through and the sauce should be braised onto the shell.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle chopped parsley over the crab and toss. Transfer to serving platter and serve with parsley garnish and lemon slices.

Serves 4
