Steaming crablegs at home is really, really easy. I actually don't like making them, that's why I made Paul learn! I'm weird with seafood. I'm afraid it's never cooked enough and by that point whatever I'm trying to make tastes like rubber. But seriously, it's a heck of a lot cheaper to make your own steamed crableg dinner at home.
What you need:
2-4 lbs frozen crablegs
large 12-15 qt stockpot with lid
Fill the stockpot with 1 in. to 1.5 in. of water. Turn on high heat with lid on and bring water to a full boil (you should see a cloud of steam when you lift the lid). Place 2 clusters of frozen crablegs in stock pot and put lid back on. Steam for 7-8 minutes. Serve with melted butter.
Some people have special recipes to steam them using garlic, old bay seasoning, etc. We've even been to a expensive restaurant in Cape May, NJ that does that. But we feel, really, what's the point? All the seasonings do is coat the crablegs, not the meat. Worse it gets all over your fingers and makes it harder to get to all the crableggy goodness inside. Meh, we like our crablegs simple.
Ohh man they look good.
