Learning to cook king crab legs, especially frozen king crab legs, is an easy process. Usually, frozen crab legs have already been cooked, thus they only need to be warmed up. Experts recommend putting frozen crab legs inside a colander or steam over rapid boiling water while cooking them. Water should be roughly one-third of its way to the top of the pot. Cover with a lid and steam the frozen crab legs for around 10 minutes, or till they are well cooked.
Seasonal King Crab Legs
Simply pour two glasses of water and a teaspoon of salt into a pot and bring to a boil before boiling pre-cooked Alaskan king crab legs.
Put the crab legs on a plate in the pot above boiling water. Whenever the water returns to a boil, cover and cook for around six minutes, or till they emit a “cooked odour.”
King Crab Legs Boiled
Just fill a large pot halfway full of ice water then bring to a simmer. Add a tablespoon of salt and any additional seasonings, if using. So when water comes to a boil, add the crab legs and turn the heat down to medium. Allow for around six minutes of simmering time. Remove the crab legs from the water, rinse them, and they are safe to serve.
King Crab Legs Baked
Preheat the oven to 350°F before baking the crab legs. Arrange the crab legs in a single layer in a deep baking pan. Fill the pan halfway with hot water, about 1/8 inch deep. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, covered with aluminium foil.
