These are my absolute favorite, but I've never tired to make them myself. When they were on sale for only $4.88 a pound this weekend, I had to give them a try! They were very intimidating, but they ended up being super easy and they tasted amazing! I like mine plain, with no butter or seasoning, but doctor them up to your hearts desire! Great for a fancy night in!
2 pounds snow crab legs
4 cloves garlic, peeled
Dash of Old Bay Seasoning, if desired.
1 lemon, sliced into wedges
1 stick butter, melted
Get out your very biggest pot and boil a bunch of water in it. When at a rolling boil, throw in the garlic cloves and if using, the Old Bay Seasoning. Put in half the crab legs (if they fit), put the lid on and boil:
if frozen: 15-20 minutes
thawed: 5-10 minutes
Drain and serve with lemon & butter! YUM!
