Steamed Alaskan King Crab
We postponed our valentines dinner until Friday night. We made sauteed shrimp ( I’ve shared that recipe with you before) and then we made some fabulous steamed crab legs for our main course. It was delish. I am sharing a quick tip on the best way to make Steamed Alaskan King Crab
Always buy your crab legs frozen and let them thaw them in your refrigerator overnight ( in a tray) . Crab legs are cooked then frozen on the ships and some markets will thaw them before selling. To be sure yours are nice and fresh buy them frozen 😉
What You Need
Alaskan King crab legs
A large pot with a lid
Steaming tray ( that will fit inside the pot)
Lets make it! Fill the pot with water until it reaches the steaming tray, bring to a rapid boil over medium high heat. Place the legs into the pot resting on the steaming tray. Cover with the lid and reduce heat to medium let them steam for 8-10 minutes. That’s it! Serve with melted butter.
Don’t over steam them, remember you are basically just warming them through as they have already been cooked.
Did you have a special Valentines meal?
Happy Presidents day in the US enjoy your day off ( I hope you have the day off)
