Broiled Crab Legs

Directions

  1. Thaw crab legs, if frozen. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Place crab legs, cut side up, on the greased unheated rack of a broiler pan. Stir together butter, basil, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Brush crab legs with butter mixture. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.
  2. Makes 4 (4-ounce) servings

From the Test Kitchen

If split crab legs are unavailable from your grocer, purchase whole legs. Using kitchen shears, cut through the lighter colored underside of each leg. Lay partially split legs on a cutting board. Cut through each hard shell with a sharp knife, completely splitting the legs.
