Anyone know about "crab butter?"

beratlis | Dec 6, 200912:59 PM     8

My father in law makes this amazingly tasty sauce out of the "remains" of crabs. We've never really known what exactly is in the sauce as he likes to keeps his secrets. But we have some fresh caught crab from a neighbor & he is out of town so won't be coming over to eat w/ us & make his "butter". So we decided to google it but can't find anything at all - weird. Does this mean he is making the sauce out of the "waste" - which he has always promised us he isn't...or is there really such a thing & is it something we should be eating??

Here's what we know about how he makes it.
he scrapes out the inside of the shell into a bow & adds lemon juice, evoo, green onions & salt. As far as we know he does't use anything else out of the crab.

Then he mixes it all up & we spoon it onto sourdough while we eat our crab.

Anyone heard about making this type of thing?

Thank you!
