How to Prepare Crab Legs?

Answer

Crab legs may seem like they would be hard to cook, but nothing is farther from the truth. Did you know most crab legs you bring home from the store are already cooked, so you need to be careful not to over cook them while you are basically just heating them up. I love to steam them. I have a steamer and simply place them in there, steaming for about 6 to 8 minutes. If you don't have a steamer you can use a double boiler on your stove top, boiling the water and then adding the crab legs to the basket on top for the 6 to 8 minutes. Although I have never done it, you may also grill crab legs. Brush the shell with oil, so it won't stick to the grill, and grill on medium high heat for 5 minutes on both sides. Don't forget to serve them with lots of dripping melted butter!
