    Add crab legs. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or just until heated. Remove with tongs to serving platter. Serve warm with melted butter.

Expert Tips

  • Plan on serving 1 lb of crab legs per person. If you’re serving a larger group, this recipe is easy to double or even triple, but don’t crowd the stockpot; cook the crab legs in batches.
  • Frozen crab legs are typically precooked, so you’re simply reheating them in the boiling water. Be careful not to overcook them, as they will lose their delicate flavor.
  • Add some finely chopped garlic to the melted butter for extra flavor.
