Crab Legs and Garlic Butter Sauce

For Valentines Day I made crab legs for Rebekah. They are surprisingly easy and just as delicious as at a restaurant at about half the price.

  • 2 Pounds Crab Legs (I used snow crabs)
  • 1/2 Cup Salted Butter
  • 2 Cloves Fresh Garlic (minced)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Place thawed crab legs on a cookie sheet and place in oven for 8-12 minutes (mine were still partially frozen so they took about 15-18 minutes). Almost all crab legs you buy at the grocery store are precooked so you are just getting them hot.
  3. While crab legs are in oven put the garlic and about 1 Tablespoon of the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  4. Cook the garlic for a few minutes, then begin adding slabs of butter and melting it all together. Once the butter is melted you can skim the white stuff off the top. 
  5. Put your butter sauce and the crab legs in some serving dishes and enjoy!
A good rule of thumb is 1 pound of crab legs per person. The butter sauce is simple and just right to accent the delicious crab meat.
