Lemon Garlic King Crab Legs

In the past, I have strayed away from cooking lobster and crab legs due to “smelling up the house.” One day I saw that Emiril suggested cooking with beer instead of water. It works. I love this crab leg recipe.

Instructions

  1. 1Poor beer into a pot. Smash garlic cloves. Slice lemons thick, sqeeze some juice into pot and then throw lemons and garlic into pot and bring to boil.
  2. 2Break thawed crab legs at knuckles. This allows the lemon & garlic flavors to be absorbed by the meat. Place crab legs in a basket and place in pot. Steam about 7-9 minutes until heated through.
  3. 3Serve with (optional) melted butter and Blue Moon beer
