Our King Crab legs are pre-cooked so you can eat them either hot or chilled. To re-steam simply add water on the bottom of a pot and bring to a boil. Place a basket into the pot and place your crab legs into that basket. Top the pot with a lid and let the steam roll out for approximately 4-6 minutes if thawed and 8-9 minutes if frozen. Once the meat is hot your crab legs are ready to eat. Simply remove from the pot, drain any excess water, sprinkle with Harbour House Crabs crab seasoning and enjoy this sweet taste. They are also great additions to salads, pasta salads, and soup recipes.
Steaming King Crab Legs or Snow crab legs.
When steaming pre-cooked Alaskan king crab legs, simply place two cups of water and a tablespoon of salt in a pot and bring it to a boil. Place the crab legs along with your favorite seasonings in the pot on a rack over the boiling water. When the water starts to boil again, cover with a lid and cook for about ten to fifteen minutes. Six to eight minutes for snow crab legs.
Boiled Crab Legs
To boil snow crab legs, simply fill a large saucepan half full of cold water and bring to a boil. Add a tablespoon of salt and the seasonings of your choice. When the water begins to boil add the crab legs and reduce the heat to medium. Allow them to simmer for about eight minutes. Twelve to fifteen minutes for king crab legs.
Grilled Crab Legs
To grill snow crab legs you need to brush olive oil on all sides of the crab legs to prevent them from sticking. Then place the crab legs on a hot grill of 300 degrees for about five minutes, turn over and cook for another five minutes until they are heated all the way through. For king crab legs, heat at 275 degrees for 10 minutes each side.

To bake snow crab legs, preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Place the crab legs in a shallow baking pan in single layers. Place hot water in the pan about 1/8 of an inch deep. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for ten to twelve minutes. Fifteen to twenty minutes for king crab legs.
