DIRECTIONS

  • Thaw seafood, rinse and pat dry on paper towels.
  • To Steam: place one inch of water in a large pot, bring to a boil. Place shellfish in a steaming rack or colander and lower into boiling water - if the bottom of the rack goes below the level of the water, empty out some of the water as you don't want your shellfish to be sitting in water. You may have to break crab legs to fit into the pot. Cover pot and cook as follows:.
  • Snow crab legs or claws - 5 minutes.
  • King Crab legs (whole or split) - 8 minutes.
  • Maine lobster or Dungeness crab - 10 minutes.
  • In Oven: preheat oven to 400°. Wrap clean, thawed shellfish in foil, forming a tent. Place in oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remember, you are only reheating, not cooking your frozen, thawed shellfish.
  • Serve with melted herb, or garlic, or plain butter.
