Grilled Dungeness Crab

Recipe by @vertsmoke


  • 2lb Wild Dungeness Crab
  • One stick of unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 clove of mashed garlic
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp red chile flakes
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Grilled Sourdough
Prep time
2 minutes
Cook time
10 minutes


  1. Defrost the crab overnight in the fridge.
  2. Set up your grill for medium-high direct heat.
  3. Preheat a cast iron pan on the grill. To create a compound butter sauce, add all ingredients but the crab, stir and allow butter to melt.
  4. Grill the crab 3 minutes per side — just enough to slightly char and impart some smokey flavor (reminder you're just warming it through, the crab comes pre-cooked).
  5. After grilling, toss the crab into the butter lemon mixture. Let the sauce bubble and then reduce for approximately 3 minutes over the direct heat. Be sure to thoroughly coat every piece of crab in the sauce.
  6. Serve immediately with lemon, and grilled sourdough.
