Lemongrass Alaska King Crab Legs

  • Yum



    King crab is so good that it only needs the faintest hint of something to make it perfect. This can be as simple as some salt and lemons in the steaming water, or, it could be something a little more Eastern–lemongrass say.

    Serves: 4

    Prep Time: 10 minutes

    Cook Time: 15 minutes


    • 1 to 2 gallons water
    • 2 bruised lemongrass stalks
    • 4 smashed garlic cloves
    • 4 oz. smashed ginger
    • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt
    • 4 pounds Alaska Crab legs, thawed or frozen


    1. Combine water, lemongrass, garlic, ginger and salt and bring to a boil.
    2. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
    3. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Crab under cold water.
    4. Add crab legs and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes for frozen crab or 3 to 4 minutes for thawed crab, until heated-through.
    5. Remove crab from liquid and drain well before serving.
