Snow Crab Legs with Garlic Butter makes for a wonderful meal you can easily make at home!
As soon as I met my husband many years ago, I immediately found out what his favorite food is, Snow Crab. This man can eat Snow Crab Legs with Garlic Butter as I have never seen in my life!
We, of course, had to stop by local seafood restaurants so he could enjoy this amazing food that he had grown so fond of.
Soon after we got married, he was always asking me to make him snow crab legs. I never really thought I could do them myself. I guess I always assumed that they were difficult to prepare, but I was so very wrong!
Can you believe these really only take less than 20 minutes? I mean they are easier to prepare than a box of macaroni and cheese. It’s true!
What is the best way to cook snow crab legs?
I set out to make him a delicious dinner recently with snow crab. I picked up Snow Crab Legs at our local grocery store, once you are ready to prepare them, run them under cold water to get the ice melt off.
Next, you will boil water on the stove with a bit of garlic salt and sea salt. Once they are fully immersed in the water, reduce the heat, and boil for about 10 minutes. Yes, it’s that easy.
Do you need to thaw frozen crab legs before cooking?
No, simply run them under water to get the ice off and then move on to boiling them.
What should you serve with Snow Crab Legs?
I’m still in shock at just how easy this was. Maybe it’s common sense, but I never realized how simple it is to make crab legs at home. Pair these with Cheddar Bay Biscuits and it’s like Red Lobster landed in my kitchen!
Are you ready to make a delicious crab leg dinner tonight?
My husband also discovered our little girl is a lover of crab legs too. He’s already planning our next crab leg dinner night!
