Mashed Yukon Golds with Dungeness Crab

How decadent could this be?
 I was thinking of making a corn and crab chowder but the potatoes at the market looked so good.
Why not combine the two? This turned out to be the main course, with a green salad and a side of vegetables.

1 1/2 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
Mashed Yukon Golds with Dungeness Crab
2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
3 Tablespoons butter, divided (or Ghee)
1/3 cup cream
2 Tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
8 ounces fresh cooked Dungeness crab

Place potatoes and garlic in a pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender. Drain and put potatoes and garlic back into pot.
Add 2 Tablespoons of butter and cream and beat with a mixer. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
In another saucepan heat 1 Tablespoon of butter on low, add crab just to heat through.
Place mashed potatoes in a serving bowl, top with crab.
Sprinkle green onions and fresh parsley over top and serve.
