  • Bake in the preheated oven until opaque and flaky, basting regularly with the butter mixture in the pan, 25 to 35 minutes.

Sorry for the blurry pic.. but this was EXCELLENT! My hubby & I both love seafood. Before we always boiled them in water with tons of seasoning that wouldn't stick. Putting them in the oven and baking them made a huge difference. I love garlic so the minced garlic was the best along with the old bay & butter. Hubby actually made this & made too much so we basted the crab legs with the mixture. It was the better than a restaurant. Read More

My new go-to recipe for crab legs. Very easy. I love that I can make so many @ one time & we can all actually eat together unlike the boiling method. Agree with others to make extra sauce for dipping! Read More
