King crab meat has a sweet, juicy taste. Crab can be served in many different ways. It is commonly served accompanied by hot melted butter. Crab legs are already cooked before you purchase them. They are frozen to secure their taste and only need to be re-heated or steamed before serving. I steam my crabs. I let the water boil and then add the crab legs and cover the pot. You will know when they are done once you can smell them. You can pick at one just to make sure. Preparing crab legs isn't a hard task, what is tricky is breaking these shells to get to your prize.
