Crab Alfredo

No items found.

Creamy and delicious Fettuccine Alfredo with local Santa Cruz Dungness Crab. This recipe is super simple, but produces some great flavors.

We hope you enjoy! 🦀🧡


  • 2 lbs Local Dungeness Crab
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup freshly gated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 medium size leaves of basil
  • 1 lb Fettuccine
  • 2 tbs Butter
  • Salt


Let get started by cooking your Dungeness Crab. You have a couple different options. We prefer to steam it. To steam  it, place your steamer basket into a large pot and fill the pot with around an inch of water. Bring the water to a boil and add your Dungness Crab. Cooking until the Dungeness Crab turn a bright red (usually takes about 15 minutes.) Once your Crab is cooked, it's time to get crackin' and remove the meat.

Bring a large pan of water to a boil and your fettuccine. Make sure to salt the water. 🧂

Heat a sauce pan to medium heat. Once heated add olive oil and start sautéing the garlic. When garlic is sautéd, add in heavy cream. When it start to boil add in Parmesan cheese stirring until fully incorporated. Add in half of Dungness Crab meat and salt Alfredo to taste.

The pasta should be finished cooking around this time. Remove the pasta from heat and strain. Return the pasta back to the pot and mix in Alfredo sauce.

Plate pasta and top with fresh Basil Dungeness Crab and Parmesan cheese.

Do you know how to shuck an oyster? 🤨 Follow these steps below and you'll be a pro in no time 🦪 👇🏽 1️⃣ Get your shucking knife (we love using @toadfishoutfitters) and wrap your oyster in a towel to prevent any hand-stabbing accidents. 2️⃣ Look for the hinge in the back and put your knife in then give the knife a little twist. You should feel it pop. 3️⃣ Run your knife across the top of the oyster. This will disconnect the adductor muscle and allow the shell to separate. 4️⃣ Keep an eye out for any shells that may have fallen in the oyster. Move your knife along the bottom and disconnect the oyster from the shell for easy slurping. (You can then flip the oyster in the shell if you like tho this is optional and for aesthetic purposes only.) 5️⃣ It's ready to eat! Toss it back & enjoy that amazing taste of the salty ocean. Check out Heidi's "How to Shuck an Oyster Like A Boss" video for more 🧡 and visit our shop for a wide range of amazing oyster vinegars, mignonettes, and hot sauces.🔥🌶
