      We're done our crab legs like this for years and it truly is the easiest and tastiest way to cook them. Don't have to deal with pots of smelly water or your cooked crab swimming in a dinner plate of water, either. Works just the same if you broil them in your oven, too. Keep that oven door cracked open, though. Keeps the broiler element on. Thanks, Molly53!!

      Thanks for posting such a great recipe for Crab Legs. We use Old Bay Seasoning and some Cajun seasonings on the outside of the legs. This flavors the crab meat wonderfully without overpowering the meat. My family uses individual pairs of scissors to cut some of the leg portions open. It makes eating them less messy. Even my young Grandchildren will eat these easily prepared favorites.
