10min King Crab Legs
Who knew fancy could be soooo easy!🦀
- 2 clusters king Crab legs
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
- 1 lemon cut into wedges.
*Be sure crab legs are fully thawed (or if frozen, add a few minutes to the cook time).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Place legs (with shell on) on a jelly roll pan or large baking sheet. Put up to 4 legs on a pan. (You may put two pans in the oven but you may have to increase the cooking time).
Bake for 10-30 minutes depending on the size of them. They should be hot/warmed though, a little steamy. (crab is cooked when it reaches 140 degrees)
Use kitchen shears or crab crackers to open the shells and remove the meat. Serve dipped in melted butter.
Steam Crab Legs: place a steam basket at the bottom of a large stockpot. Add 1 ½ cups of water, and layer in as many crab legs as will fit. Bring water to a boil, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes, just until warmed (or 7-10 minutes if frozen).
Grill Crab Legs: Lightly brush crab legs with oil. Grill over medium heat for 5-8 minutes, until warmed through.
