A Cholesterific Lunch

My family has been talking crabs for lunch for the last two days. Instead of eating in a Seafood Restaurant which for sure will cost us an arm and a leg we decided to get some live crabs from 99 Ranch Market in Anaheim. We also got shrimp to go with the crabs.
An hour after, lunch was served and made a lot of tummy happy.

Tiger Shrimp sauteed in Butter and lots of Garlic
