Ingredients

  • 1 stick of salted butter melted
  • 1 large clove of garlic minced
  • 2 lbs king crab legs
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions

  • Melt the butter and minced garlic together in a small pan and keep warm on its lowest setting.
  • Set a steamer tray inside a large pot and pour enough water inside to steam the crab. You are only reheating the crab, so you will only need a couple inches of water.
  • Add a few cloves of garlic to the water, if desired.
  • Bring water to a boil before laying the crab legs on the steamer. Cover the pot and steam for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the crab legs and serve with melted garlic butter and lemon wedges. Enjoy!!!
