thawed king crab legs
1 c. whole peppercorns
1 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. butter
2 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
We like to use a giant pot outside to cook crab legs. If allows you a lot of space to work with and doesn't smell the kitchen up with a fishy smell. Fill a large pot a little less than 3/4 full with water. Add peppercorns and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Add crab legs and cook for 5 minutes. Use large tongs to remove the crab legs and let rest in a colander for several minutes until you are able to hold them in your hands to crack the shell and pull out the meat. We like to use heavy duty kitchen shears to cut the shell and my husband does all the work so yay for the rest of us!!
Heat butter in a smaller bowl until melted and add lemon juice. Use this as a dipping sauce for your crab meat.
