Broiled Crab Legs in Herb Butter
|King crab legs||2 Clove (10 gm) (in the shell)|
|Butter||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Garlic||2 Clove (10 gm), crushed (optional)|
|Chopped parsley||2 Tablespoon|
|Basil leaves||1 Teaspoon|
Method Melt butter and add garlic (if used), herbs and salt and pepper to taste.
Place crab legs in a flameproof baking dish, pour over the butter and broil 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of the legs, turning once.
Alternatively bake the legs in a very hot oven (450Â°F) for about 15 minutes or until brown.
Split them down each side with scissors, loosen the shells, baste with the butter and serve.
