Roasted Dungeness Crab

For years I’ve always been a boiler of crabs. But I finally discovered oven roasting crab. It make for delicious crab while giving a crispy and easy to break off shell.

Make sure to use live crab.


  • 2 large Dungeness crabs, cooked, cleaned, and cracked (about 4 1/4 pounds)
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese


Heat the oven to 500 degrees or the highest roasting temperature.

Combine all the ingredients and mix well.

Spread out the crab onto a baking sheet.

Roast for 15 minutes. No more. No less.
