King Crab Legs after boiling in hot water with salt, lemon, and Old Bay Seasoning
Happy Anniversary to us!
"David and I treated ourselves to King Crab legs compliments of Sam’s frozen food section. It was pricey...around $50.00 a package and I bought two! I was a bit hesitant since they were pricey...sure didn’t want to mess them up but they were wonderful!" Margie Davis fields
If you're wondering the best way to cook King Crab legs, here's the low-down on this delightful indulgence.
Thaw the shellfish on a cookie sheet in the refrigerator overnight. Prepare a big pot, half full, of water, with a couple of Tsp. of kosher salt, old bay seasoning, and a sliced lemon. Bring to a rolling boil. Place the crab legs in the boiling water, put the lid on, lower heat to medium, and boil for 5-6 minutes (I did six). Remove the legs and rinse slightly. Pat with a paper towel. Serve with melted butter. David prefers clarified butter, I use unsalted butter! I served with a salad and roasted asparagus! Yummy!
