Foodie Friday: Roasted Garlic Beer Buttery Crab

Oh Mr. Crab, won’t you stop moving…

So one my really good friend had a house warming party. There was chicken, tri- tip, corn, really spicy sauce, and me (the girl who’s going to make crab for the first time in her life).

MY Roasted Garlic Beer Buttery Crab RECIPE
8 cloves of garlic
1 stash of green onions
2 bars of smart balance butter.
a lot of garlic salt
half a bottle of corona beer
and 1/2 cup of olive oil
(this serving is for 4 dungeness crabs || medium size)

diced garlic. place in foil. drizzle olive oil over the garlic. bake in a preheated oven at 350 (175°C) for about 10 mins, until garlic is soft. melt butter with olive oil in a large pot on high heat, add garlic, and garlic salt to taste. bring the fire down.

wash the crab one by one, i used fresh crab.
how to handle a fresh crab?
pick the crab up with tongs or carefully with your fingers.
making sure to grab the back of the shell, the crab can reach pretty far back under his body to pinch, but your upper fingers are quite safe.
or you can also grab hold of a couple of back legs on either side to immobilize your crab, but be careful not to break them off.
lastly, you can simply put them in you freezer for 5 mins to knock them out.

place crab, one by one into the pot of butter + olive oil + garlic salt (make sure everything is melted and mixed) taste the sauce to see if you like it.

brush the butter and olive oil onto crabs. dust garlic salt onto all the crabs.
put a lid over it and let it cook on high heat for 5 minutes.

cut the green onions (about 1 inch). open a bottle of corona (don’t worry if you don’t drink like me, the alcohol will cook off)

remove the lid, away from your face (so the steam won’t hurt you).
mix crab around, make sure every crab gets it’s chance with the sauce!

add a little bit more garlic salt (in moderation) green onions, and half a bottle of beer. cook for 10 more minutes
