My friend’s family gave us these giant Alaskan King Crab, so we had to share our 3 dipping sauces – Garlic Chive Butter, spicy-sweet Diablo Sauce, and my extra-sour Favorite Tartar Sauce! You’ll please everyone with these 3 sauces. I think crab is one of my new favorite foods 😀

Thank you to the Swasand family for giving us this amazing crab! What a treat!
