KING CRAB LEGS
Wow! I came home to Tanner cooking 4 pounds of crab legs! Who wouldn't be thrilled? We all know how much I LOVE crab legs, but 4 pounds? I didn't think we could do it, but we (OK Tanner had most of them) finished all but 2 legs!!! Here are the super easy directions:
1. Allow them to thaw in the bag for 20-30 minutes.
2. Light candle and melt 2-3 teaspoons of butter over a flame.
3. Bring a large stock pot 2/3 full of water to a rapid boil. We added 2 tablespoons of sea salt to taste.
4. Boil 7 minutes
5. Place on a large serving platter and DIG IN!!!
After 25 minutes of chowing down we had accomplished out goal! Well, almost all of it. Time to toss out the shells and take out the trash, no one likes a fishy and stinky kitchen!!
I want to give a special thanks you to Rod, Kim and Conner Morrissey. They are Tanner's Uncle, Aunt and Cousin who live in Las Vegas. They gave us this awesome wedding gift so we could enjoy crab legs at home. The platter, strainers, butter melter, and cocktail forks are one of the BEST and useful gifts ever!! THANK YOU!!!
