Garlic Butter Baked Crab Legs Yummy


ingredients

3 lbs king crab legs
1/3 cup butter (salted or unsalted)
1/2 head garlic about 6 garlic cloves minced pressed
1/3 lemon, juice of
1/2 lime juice of
1/7 cup extra virgin olive oil
sea salt (optional)
dried parsley (optional)

directions

preheat your oven to 370 degrees meanwhile grab yourself a small saucepan on med low heat melt the butter add the garlic (I prefer a press) and lightly saute squeeze in the juice of the citrus of choice If using a lemon squeeze the juice into your hands so that you can remove the seeds with ease turn the heat to low and let those flavors mesh until the oven is nice and hot toss in as much salt (to taste) and a couple pinches of parsley then whisk in that olive oil with a fork turn off your burner
arrange your tasty crustaceans in a 10×12 baking dish brushing each leg with the sauce -tasty tip- I use an injector to pop a -little- extra umph into my crabs pour any remaining sauce over those puppies now toss the pan into the oven on the center rack
bake your crabs for about 30 minutes or so - depending on how thick the legs you have are- brushing the sauce from the bottom of the pan onto the legs every 6-8 minutes remove from oven sprinkle with a few pinches o’ parsley for garnish
