Dungeness Crab Sandwich

With Dungeness Crab season well underway in California, we thought a great sandwich using this local crustacean would be a perfect way to start the New Year! You can try this easy to prepare sandwich, or if you’re a purest – all you need to do is boil ‘em in a pot and serve them with butter and sourdough. Enjoy!
