  • 2 pounds king crab legs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • parley, to taste
10 mins
25 mins
35 mins
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

In a small saucepan, on medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes. Squeeze in the lemon juice. Turn the heat to low and let those flavors mesh until the oven is nice and hot. Season with salt and parsley. Then whisk in the olive oil. Remove from heat.

Arrange your crab legs in a 9x13 baking dish, brushing each leg with the sauce. Pour any remaining sauce over the top. Bake your crabs for about 25 minutes, brushing the sauce from the bottom of the pan onto the legs every 5-7 minutes.

Remove from oven. Sprinkle with a few pinches of parsley for garnish.

"Wow! SO good. Next time I think I will try to crack the legs a little before. This will get the butter on the meat more and make it easier to eat."
