Crab Saute Scampi

Good Monday morning Foodies! I hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend!
I spent Saturday evening preparing another great seafood dish in honor of National Seafood Month! This week's recipe was an easy Crab Saute Scampi with Lobster Gram's Fresh Catch Jonah Crab Meat.
The Fresh Catch Jonah Crab Meat from Lobster Gram is ideal for so many recipes because of how convenient it is! Two lbs of this fresh Jonah Crab Meat already cooked, picked and shelled for you! All you have to do is find your favorite recipe and toss in the crab!
Gourmet does not have to mean complicated! In my experience, the easiest way to create a five star feast is working with quality products and letting that quality shine through.
This recipe is a great example of just that!

How to Make Crab Saute Scampi

12 oz. cooked Jonah Crab meat
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
1/2 cup white wine
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/4 cup clam juice or chicken broth
Pinch salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley
1 lb. cooked pasta

In a medium sauté pan, melt the 1/4 cup of butter and sauté the garlic until it is golden brown. Add white wine, clam juice or chicken broth and spices and bring to a boil. Let sauce boil away until half is left. Add the crab meat and return to a simmer. Reduce heat, add the remaining butter and simmer until the butter melts and the sauce thickens. Serve at once over your favorite pasta. Garnish with chopped parsley.
