- 2 lbs King Crab Legs
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp Old bay Seasoning (mine was 1/3 less salt)
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- Fine Sea Salt for top
- Chopped fresh parsley for serving
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium glass measuring cup add the butter, garlic, old bay, and red pepper flakes. Microwave just until the butter is melted. Stir.
Arrange the Crab Legs on a large baking sheet (with sides) and pour the melted butter mixture over the top of all. Because the crab is frozen, some of the butter mixture will stick to the crab shell…this is good! The rest will coat the pan and combine with the juices as it bakes. Sprinkle a little sea salt over all…not too much.
Bake, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes in preheated 375 degree oven, depending on the size of your crab….ours were King and 32 minutes was perfect.
Remove Crab Legs from the pan and place on a platter. Add the fresh chopped parsley to the broth in the pan and pour into dipping bowls. Pour the remaining butter-broth over the crab legs on platter.
Enjoy with a twice baked potato on the side and a chilled glass of Sauvignion Blanc.
Enjoy on your next birthday!
