This recipe for Crab with Spicy Garlic sauce is to die for. Its buttery, garlicky and full of flavor. The best part is you can get in ready in 30 minutes or less.
Once the water boils, add the washed crab, 1 lime, 2 bay leaves, and cook till it turns pink.
Drain and keep aside.
Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed pot large enough to hold all the crabs.
Now add the spices (paprika, cayenne, coriander, cinnamon) and stir for a minute to get rid of the raw flavor of spices. Add the vinegar, pepper, and salt. Taste and adjust the flavor if needed. (Be careful when doing so as the butter will be very hot.)
Place the drained crab in a big bowl and add the sauce. Toss it to coat well.utter.
Optional: Add the crabs to the pot with butter sauce. Cover and cook for another 10 minutes, stirring it every five minutes and coating all the crabs with sauce.
Transfer the crabs onto a serving plate. Serve with fresh cut limes and sauce in a bowl.
To save time while cooking, you can boil the crab and start making the sauce simultaneously. Add the level of spice as per your taste. This seafood boil sauce recipe can be used for other seafood like crawfish, shrimp and clams.
You can also add corn and sausages too.
