Baked Crab Legs with Garlic Butter


  • 1 lb king crab legs
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp of chopped parsley
  • 1/2 stick of melted salted butter
  • 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • Lemon slices for garnish


  1. Using a sharp knife or a pair of a scissors, slice or cut the crab legs into halves to expose the flesh. Arrange them evenly on a baking sheet or tray.
  2. Melt butter, adding garlic, parsley, and lemon juice. Stir to mix well. Drizzle then spread the butter mixture on the crab and save some for dipping.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 375F. Place thawed crab legs on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake until warm throughout, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately with the remaining garlic lemon butter and lemon slices.
