This is such a simple technique. Certainly a cheaper and taster option than going to Red Lobster.
Although your recipe is for Snow Crab, it works well for any crab. I used King Crab legs that I bought on sale...already cooked but just needed to reheat. I'm glad I found your method. This turned out perfect! My husband was in hog heaven!!! Pam
This was a great method to use. I took the crab out and when I opened it, it was beautiful :D
Perfect way to cook them. 5 min was perfect. Thank you
This was the best! I added just a little cajon seasoning to the water while it boiled and made my whole house smell like I was a professional cook. My husband was impressed and I enjoyed watching chow down
I love snow crab legs! Great way to prepare them!<br/><br/>THE NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION ON SODIUM CONTENT IS GROSSLY MISTAKEN, HOWEVER!<br/>The true sodium content for 1/4 lb. of snow crab legs is approx. 395 mg NOT 1900.2 mg! Still pretty high, so don't add salt to the water, or to the butter...or use unsalted butter for dipping.
Wonderful!! Timing was perfect! I didn't realize they were this easy!! We followed the directions exactly, except we used King crab. We will be steaming crab legs on a very regular basis!!! Definitely worth the price (for a family of 5)!! Thank you!!
I normally boil crab legs but this method is easier and the crab was perfect! Thank you.
So simple, & I like it better than boiling:)
This is how we always prepare our crab legs. The meat comes right out of the shell and is sweet and not water logged. Note that the cooking time would need to be increased with a larger quantity and likewise, if you don't use a pot large enough for the steam to heat the legs evenly.
