Steamed King Crab Legs With Herbs

Seafood is eaten often at our house if not fish than shrimp if not shrimp then crabs. But I never tried cooking King Crab which is by the way delicious. I wanted to add flavor without mixing with too many ingredients. I prefer to cook with ingredients that I know and are not from a can or packet.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs King Crab legs
  • 1 lemon sliced
  •  4 cloves garlic
  • 4 sprigs of dill
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tbsp Sea Salt
  • 2 cups water

To Prepare

I started off with frozen King Crab that I picked up at a local Meat shop MN is too far from fresh crabs. Rinse under cold running water and set aside until needed.

Slice Lemon, and Garlic  add to a large frying pan (that will hold at least 3 cups of water). Add dill, butter and salt saute until lemon has some color add water and bring to a boil. Lay Crab Legs into pan bending them a bit, but not breaking.

Cover with lid and let them simmer/steam for 6-7 minutes.

Serve with extra lemons and clarified butter

I served with herbed potatoes and a light cabbage salad
