Oooh Curry! I've just recently started liking curry
I noticed that the legs were already seperated and it was slit down the middle (so the legs were easy to peel).
I was a little stumped. I didn't necessiarly want to boil them... so I tried something a little different (okay and a little fattening... but it IS my cheat night tonight lol).
I didn't have any lemon and I decided to just grab a few staple items and toss them together.
1/4 cup of butter
1 crushed garlic clove
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp (approx) of salt
1/4 tsp (approx) fresly cracked pepper.
I defrosted the legs (8 medium legs)
In a large frying pan I melted the butter... and sauteed the garlic. Once it started bubbling, I tossed in the parsley, salt and pepper. Once the garlic was cooked through I tossed in the crab legs... mixed it around a bit and then let them simmer in the butter mixture for about 5 minutes (covered).
SOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo GOOOD!!!! OMG!!!! OMG OMG OMG!!!
This is DEFFINATELY a cheat dinner. But overall I didn't eat a lot of the butter. There was still at least 90 percent of it left once the crab was eaten.
I guess you could use olive oil in place of the butter... but I don't think it would be the same.
You don't want to use more than one clove of garlic, or else it'll drown out the crab flavor. I think this would be equally good with shrimp.
Oh yeah... and Mr. "I hate crab" actually LIKED IT! He ate a bit himself!
