Big Boy's Kunde Family Crab

Of all the culinary traditions of the Kunde Family, this recipe is the coup de grace and has been handed down to each generation from our Grandfather, Arthur "Big Boy" Kunde.

Big Boy's Kunde Family CrabIngredients:
  • 5 Dungeness crabs
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 lg tsp horesradish - prefer Beaver brand
  • Salt and Pepper

Brush crab shells, rinse, crack and place in a large glass or wooden bowl. Finely chop the celery, onion, parsley and garlic. I use my Cuisinart to get a nice fine even chop.

Add the oils, vinegar, lemon juice, horseradish and pour over the cracked crab. Salt and pepper to taste.

Cover and put in the refrigerator, stirring every few hours. The longer it sits the better it gets! Serve alongside fresh sourdough French bread and you’ve got a traditional Kunde family meal. Serves 4-6.

Serve with:

Kunde Family Winery Chardonnay
