Steamed Snow Crab Legs

cajuncookingtv's picture
Snow Crab Legs are not only easy to cook, but also easy to eat. Snow Crab Legs are typically from Alaskan seaboard and a smaller cousin to the King Crab. Snow Crabs are sold pre-cooked and frozen. One can actually just thaw and eat; however, many people prefer boiled in crab boil and other seasonings, Cajun Cooking style, and dipped in melted butter or Cajun Cocktail Sauce.
Ingredients
  Shrimp & crab boil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sea salt To Taste
  Sweet onion 1 Medium
  Celery stalks 3
  Garlic powder 2 Tablespoon
  White distilled vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1⁄4 Tablespoon
  Bay leaves 5
Directions

Fill a large 8-12 quart stock pot with water. Leave 5 inches or so from the top to allow for adding ingredients. Bring water to rolling boil.

Add in all the seasonings.

Add the Snow Crab Legs. Bring back to a boil and boil for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat. Let sit to soak up the seasoning for about 10 minutes.
Serve Snow Crab Legs on large platters with crab or nut crackers and small pick seafood forks.

We typically serve with boiled new potatoes by boiling the potatoes in the boiling seasoned water for 20 minutes before adding in the Snow Crab Legs.

Absolutely easy, outstanding recipe. On my first try with snow crabs, two of my favorite food critique friends declared how perfect the seasoning was. The video even explains why things are added and what it can do to enhance. AWESOME!
