0 hours 10 mins
0 hours 25 mins
1/2 Cup of unsalted butter
3-4 Large garlic cloves, finely minced
1 Tsp. Salt and black pepper to taste
1 Tsp. Calabrian Chili Flakes (more or less to taste)
Zest of lemon for butter, and wedges of lemon to serve
NOTE: This is a fabulous treat and one I save for big occasions. King Crab legs are expensive (very expensive) and they are addictive so you need at least a pound per person. I usually serve them with another entree (like a steak) or as an appetizer. To really enjoy these, I strongly recommend eating them outside at a BBQ. They can get messy cracking the shells, removing the meat and having all that delicious butter drizzling down your fingertips! Using seafood forks helps get the meat out of the tiny parts of the shell, and good ‘ole lobster bibs come in pretty handy. Have lots of handi wipes on hand for easy clean up and just go for it!!! The first time I had this dish was in a very upscale seafood restaurant and the whole time I thought, ” Why are you serving this at a linen covered table while I’m sitting here in a silk blouse?” LOL This totally belongs on a picnic table where you can really enjoy it and have fun!
