Crab Legs

Valentines day called for King Crab.

1.5 lbs king crab legs

Crab comes to you cooked already, so just defrost either in the fridge overnight or quickly in cool water for a few minutes while your water starts to boil.

Boil 2-3″ of water in a large stock pot with a steamer plate in the bottom. When water hits a boil add the legs (it’s ok to break them to fit) and leave them in there for 6 minutes.

Remove and set on a plate with 4 T of garlic butter (no salt needed, just 1 clove crushed garlic warmed in butter). Cut with kitchen shears because you’re awesome/lazy.

*Note: this is exactly the time needed to cook asparagus and also a large steak at the same time…
