Alaska Crab Provencal

Serve Alaska Crab Provencal with dipping sauce, warm bread and chilled champagne.



  1. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in garlic and shallot; cook 3 to 4 minutes, until garlic is soft. Stir in herbs; cook 2 minutes.
  2. Open champagne; pour 1/2 cup champagne into butter; stopper champagne. Bring sauce mixture to simmer; cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until sauce is reduced slightly. Add sea salt to taste. Keep sauce warm.
  3. Rinse frozen Alaska Crab legs under cold running water to remove any ice glaze; pat dry with paper towels. Discard towels.
