For my baked crab legs recipe I prefer Alaskan King crab or Dungeness crabs. Mainly because it is much easier to harvest the meat from the Alaskan crabs. The recipe that follows is as quick and easy as it gets. All you really need is 2 pounds of Alaskan King crab legs and some melted butter. For starter just head over to your local grocery store and buy crab legs that are still frozen -- frozen king crab legs work best. Allow the crab legs to thaw in the refrigerator for 8 hours or more before you attempt to bake them.
Can wait the 8 hours for the crab legs to thaw? If you are hungry or starving to eat crabs there is a shortcut to thawing out the crabs. Just place the crab in a sink of cold water and allow them yo thaw out. Once thawed drain away the water and let the crabs sit in the sink before following the recipe instructions listed above. Enjoy these good eats.
