Alaskan King Crab Dinner

My dad sent me Alaskan King Crab as a birthday present. I hope he sends it every year. Here’s how it goes:

1. Arrive frozen in a box.


2. Put into the freezer for safekeeping.


3. Time to defrost.


4. Time to Steam! (in beer, lemon and garlic)


5. Waiting their turn


6. Ready for eating!


7. The whole spread: newspaper, corn on the cob, sourdough rolls, dips & spreads, and lots of tools for pounding the meat out of the shell!


8. Graveyard! We at the whole 5 lbs of alaskan king crab – so delicious!


Side Note: I finally found a purpose for Chardonnay (being a sauvignon blanc kind of girl) – it goes great with crab!
