Personal Notes:
This is a recipe that my mom introduced to me, and I altered to make my own. I recommend fresh Dungeness crab, which is abundant in this region, rather than store bought, prepackaged crab. The spice measurements are a guess...I usually don't measure out spices when I cook, but when you add the spices, it should be aromatic, and you should be able to clearly smell all the different spices that you've added. Bon apetit!
