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. But, it’s not much of a recipe to share with you today.
So I thought I’d give you a quick tip on the best way to steam crab legs.

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)
Tongs
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)

    You and your husband certainly had a wonderful Valentine’s dinner Katie! Looks so yummy. I note that today is a holiday for you. Have an enjoyable day and a good week.

    Oh, those look so yummy – I haven’t had crab legs for a long time!

    Glad they are already cooked, because I couldn’t cook and kill my own.

    My husband hates Seafood, but not me. all of the above sounds too good to be true. Thanks for sharing your Valentine’s Day recipe and hope you had a great one!! :)

    That looks so good. Too bad I’m allergic to shellfish. My husband loves shrimp and crab but I’m too scared to cook any for him.

    Great Katies think alike: we had steamed lobster for our Valentine’s dinner AND we didn’t have it until Friday night, either! How weird is that?
