King Crab Legs...preparation
One of the Supermarkets here in Scottsdale, AZ is running a 3 day special...King Crab Legs...$5.99 a pound.
I just bought 3 pounds....
Besides steaming them what else can I do?
I just saw live King Crab at our local asian market for $14.99/lb. Anyone know how to prepare them? They were huge!
Cut off half of each shell, lengthwise of course, put on lemon-butter, and run 'em under the broiler for 5 minues or so, just enough to heat through. This was the way I had them at a great restaurant 40 years ago and they were so good I can still taste them.
Take out the meat and use in crab Louis or other seafood salad.

Yes, throwing them on the grill is how I do it. Gets a little smoky flavor and the you can break the shell with a fork, like a can opener because its so easy, and get huge chunks of meat out.
