Boiled King Crab Legs with Lemon Butter Sauce
The Gourmet Farm Girl
If you enjoy crab legs this is so easy to do at home; all you need is a large stock pot.
Purchase frozen crab legs; I prefer the split legs; makes it easier to crack them open.
2-3 pounds serves 2 people; adjust accordingly if feeding more
Fill a large stock pot with enough water to cover the crab legs and add 1-2 teaspoons of sea salt
Bring the water to a full boil and add the frozen crab legs; return to a full boil for 1-2 minutes then remove and drain. (keep in mind that most king crab legs have already been cooked and frozen; check first)
Melt 4-5 Tablespoons butter for dipping
Squeeze the juice of ½ -1 lemon over the legs or into the melted butter
