King Crab!

I've spoken before about the show "The Deadliest Catch" and last night Gene and I enjoyed famous King Crab. (I think it might be that one in the picture) It was one of Gene's birthday gifts. Boy was it yummy! Gene made a delicious garlic butter dipping sauce (recipe at end) and we feasted!

We had sweet local corn, organic!

Look at that leg!

Boy is he happy!

One slight problem, we had the crab forks but not the crackers. No problem, pliers do just fine!

The crab was purchased from Glick's Old Fashioned Meat Market in Visalia. If you are local, go check it out! You won't be disappointed!

Tarragon Garlic Butter
15 min | 5 min prep

1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1-2 teaspoon dried tarragon or fresh tarragon

1. Put butter and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat to melt.
2. Once melted, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for a few
minutes or until your crab legs are steamed and ready to devour!
3. Enjoy!

Those look so WONDERFUL! Thanks for the recipe.
Fun fact, they were originally called Spider Crabs, but the name was too off-putting for restaurants, so they changed it to King Crab.
I know.
Sometimes I amaze myself. Ha!

Tarragon is one of my all-time favorite herbs to cook with. I love all of your fabulous photos to accompany the recipe. Good recipes are hard to come by and be shared. We'll have to dine on crab soon!
