Garlic Steamed Dungeness Crab

Type: Fish
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

1   Dungeness crab (large)
  Peanut oil
  Garlic cloves - crushed
  Green onion - slivered
  Chinese parsley - chopped

Recipe Instructions

This is a dish that I can only describe. It is just wonderful and terribly simple.

The dish is easy to prepare and the results are spectacular. One need simply have a very fresh or a live Dungeness crab. Plunge it into boiling water to kill it quickly. Remove and drain.

Cut the crab in half the long way and drench it with peanut oil mixed with as much garlic as you wish, or can stand. Place the crab halves in a bamboo steamer and steam until very tender, about 15 minutes.

Garnish with green onion slivers and chopped Chinese parsley.
