Alaskan king crab legs are steamed to perfection with garlic, ginger and lemon grass. The shell on these crab legs are soft, so you won't need a shell cracker, simply use your fingers to release the tender sweet meat. Dip in melted butter if you desire.
Can be found online at http://www.thefishsociety.co.uk called "giant red crab legs". Also ask at your local fishmonger.

I was new to crab legs, so a bit hessitant. These were very easy and YUMMY! I like the dip in just melted butter... melt in your mouth! The only hard part is getting the crab leg out of the shell- but that happens anyway you cook them. Be patient, have lots of napkins and enjoy - 22 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely YUMMY!!! These remind me of the crab legs at a local chinese food buffet - but MUCH more delicious! - 17 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
