Baked Crab Legs in Butter Sauce


Perfectly baked crab legs with a spicy garlic butter sauce will melt in your mouth with every bite! The combination of spices and the crunchy taste of crabs will be the only way to cook crab legs again!

Every two months, I like to prepare a "fancy" dinner for my husband and I. We both love all kinds of seafood, but baked crab legs are a family favorite! A spicy garlic butter sauce complements the crab legs perfectly.  It's both a dipping sauce and a glaze.

Most people used to steam crab legs. There is nothing wrong with that except for one thing. You don't taste any spices. After years of fumigation, I decided to try a new method. By baking the crab legs, not only do you get a crunchy crust that cracks, and you may keep the crab meat tenderly inside, but you also get more flavor. Much more flavor!

 This dinner is a feast. I made some Red Lobster biscuits, shrimp (glazed with the same spicy garlic butter sauce) and a simple Caesar salad. Feel free to pair with any aspects you desire.
