Blue Crab with Spaghetti

Spread the love

This is a dish I grew up eating. Friday nights were for fish dishes and this was a staple in our family. But as prices rose on blue crabs, it became less and less a staple and more of a treat every once in a while. Such a simple dish but packed with amazing crab flavor!
