Shell Lickin' Spicy Garlic Crabs

Sherri Williams


There is almost nothing better than spicy garlic crabs. I've used dungenous crab legs, blue crabs, alaskan king crab legs, etc. Winn Dixie had a sale on stone crab legs $3.99 a lb. I couldn't resist getting tons of them, I hope that you like these...Happy Cookibg sw:)
