How to Cook and Prepare Alaskan King Crab Legs
Quick Cooking Facts and Tips
- You should allow frozen crab to thaw in your refrigerator overnight before cooking and/or consuming.
- The majority of crab cooking processes require a brief re-heat time of 5-10 minutes because our king crab has already been cooked.
- King crab should be added to stews and soups around the last 5 minutes of the cooking process.
Cooking Frozen King Crab Legs
Most frozen crab legs are already pre-cooked so they will just need to be heated. When cooking frozen crab legs, we recommend that you place them in a colander or steamer over rapidly boiling water. The pot should be about one-third of the way filled with water. You will need to cover the pot and steam your frozen crab legs for about ten minutes or until they are completely heated.
