Easy Way to Prepare Crab Legs

Do you love crab legs but either hate the mess of a huge pot of boiling water or don’t know how to prepare them?  The easiest way I have found to prepare them is in the oven – yes, the oven.  Simply preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.  Place the crab legs on a baking sheet, pour 1/4 c of water onto the baking sheet then wrap tightly with aluminum foil.

Crab 1 This is about 4 1/5 lbs. of king crab legs.

Place in the hot oven for 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and carefully remove the foil.  Transfer to a platter and serve with melted, clarified butter.  YUM!
