Crabs legs are delicious, healthy, and surprisingly simple to make at home. All you need is a few pounds of fresh crab legs, water, and a baking pan. I bake them for 15 minutes and they come out perfect every single time.
Serve the crab legs with fresh lemon wedges, melted butter, and plenty of napkins.
Things You'll Need
4 pounds fresh crab legs
1/2 cup melted butter
1 lemon, sliced into wedges
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Farhenheit. Place the crab legs onto a baking pan and pour a 1/2 cup of water into the pan.
Cover with tinfoil, and bake for 15 minutes, or until the shells are bright red and the meat is white and firm.
Remove the crab legs from the oven and serve them warm, with melted butter and lemon wedges.
