  • How to Steam King Crab Legs

    Posted on February 3, 2014 in Crab Legs Facts

    Something about eating with your hands, and working for what you are eating makes that tender lovin’ meat that much more enjoyable. Well, King Crab legs is one of a few ways to get away with playing with your food. Did you know that King Crab legs are already cooked when you purchase them? Why? King Crab legs are cooked on the fishing boats or immediately upon landfall to preserve freshness. They need only to be adequately heated before eating. One of our favorite and healthiest preparations is to steam those puppies.

    You want to let the water in the bottom of the steamer pot come to a boil, then add the crab legs in the steamer and cover. You’ll know they are heated all the way through when you can smell them. Roll up your sleeves and snag some scissors from the drawer. You can break the crab apart at the obvious places and then cut down the middle. From there you have a bowl of some fantastic crab meat. Out of 1lb of crab you’ll find that there is only 381 calories, 82g of protein and no carbs! You can add this to top off a dinner salad, or just eat it as is. ENJOY!
