Servings and Ingredients
|2 lbs. King crab legs|
|1 to 2 tbsp water|
|Hy-Vee unsalted butter, melted, optional|
|Lemon wedges, optional|
Things To Grab
- Rimmed baking sheet
- Aluminum foil
Place crab legs on a rimmed baking sheet and water.
Cover baking sheet with foil and crimp the sides to create a tight seal.
Bake for about 10 minutes, or until heated through (145 degrees).
Transfer to a platter and serve with melted butter for dipping and fresh lemon wedges.
To eat, break the crab legs at the joints. Often, a crab leg will open up at the joint, allowing for easy removal of the meat.
Turn the leg over to the smooth side and use kitchen shears to cut directly down the crab leg and simply open and remove the meat.
After removing the meat from the long shafts of the shell, use your fork to pry the meat out of the main joint at the opposite end from the claw.
