Kickin Crab Sauce Recipe

When it comes to crab sauces, they are the best in the world. A crab sauce recipe generally includes corn and potatoes. Feel free to include other seafood, such as crab, lobster, clams, mussels, etc. as well as your favorite spicy or mild sausages.

You’ll be preparing this dish over and over again because of the balance of butter, garlic, lemon pepper, cajun seasoning, old bay, cayenne pepper, and paprika. 

It gives such a tasty and delicious flavor. I can tell you after one bite, I was hooked. I had never had shrimp served that way before, so I knew I had to attempt to make it myself.

It is an easy recipe but be careful not to overcook the seafood as they may turn rubbery and hard. If you’d like, after peeling the seafood, you may dip them in the extra sauce for even more taste. Just remember to eat the seafood with your hands to get the complete experience.
