Cook: 30 mins
Total: 40 mins


  • 1 tbsp black peppercorns
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 lb Dungeness crab
  • lemon wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Using the flat side of the knife, press down and smashed the black peppercorns.

  2. Chop the black pepper roughly. Heat up the butter in the microwave, then add the black pepper and salt. Stir to mix well.

  3. To kill a live Dungeness crab, stab the crab in the middle of the body, above its abdominal flab.

  5. Coat the butter-black-pepper mixture on the crab and roast in oven for 30 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven, garnish with lemon wedges.
