Julie Lee grew up in the Puget Sound area, so it's not surprising that she loves crab. For special events, Lee heats the shellfish in broth laced with dry vermouth and garlic, and offers garlic bread to sop it up.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 6- to 8-quart covered pan over high heat, bring chicken broth, vermouth, butter, parsley, soy sauce, lemon juice, and garlic to a boil.

Step 2

Add crab pieces. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, just until crab is hot, about 4 minutes.

Step 3

Spoon crab pieces into wide bowls; ladle broth over crab.

I made this recipe for my family 11 years ago for Christmas. The BEST crab I've ever had (and I've had a lot). My family has asked me to make it over and over and I could never find the magazine issue again. I did a search today and can't believe I found it. I'll have a happy family this Christmas. Thank you!! It's so simple to make and oh so yummy. I'll serve it with white wine and plenty of sour dough bread.
