This dish lets the crab shine by keeping the sauce a simple “aglio e olio” - olive oil and garlic. The hardest part is cleaning the meat off the crab! I used a mud crab I caught, but any type of crab will do. This is my all time favorite crab recipe. If you have never cooked or cleaned crab, give it a go, can be a bit messy but it gets easier the next time, nothing beats fresh crab.
Use any pasta you like. You could use "crab stick" but this is just fake crab and I advise against. Please post any comments if you try this recipe out, I would love feedback!
