Naomi says: Every New Year’s Eve, I celebrate with my family by going whole hog on dinner. Dinner is usually some kind of filet with seafood. This year, I found a recipe for a drunken crab pot and I knew it was for me.
Now, I had grabbed crab claws instead of the crab legs that the recipe called for and I will never make that mistake again. I also added shrimp and those lil morsels were T-A-S-T-Y! I will make this again. It was simple, quick and enjoyed by my boys.
Make sure your crab legs are split and don’t overcook!
So, here we go!
2 bottles premium ale ( I used Sierra Nevada)
2 lemons, cut into quarters
5 garlic cloves, peeled and split in half
2 pounds crab legs, split (or a combination of 1 lb crab legs and 1 lb shrimp)
1 t. Old Bay Seasoning
Drawn butter, for serving
Lemon WedgesDirections:1) In a very large pot, place beer and Old Bay Seasoning and bring to a boil. Place strainer in pot.
2) On top of strainer, place crab legs,shrimp, lemons and garlic.
3) Steam for NO MORE than 5 minutes. Shrimp will be pink.
