1. Oven

To bake crab legs, preheat an oven to 350°F. Place crab legs in a shallow baking pan in single layers. Then add hot water in the pan to about 1/8 of an inch deep. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 8-10 minutes. As you will see, cooking crab legs is not difficult and it only takes a few minutes to prepare them. If you have been missing out on having king crab legs because you thought they were complicated to prepare, you may now want to reconsider!

2. Grill

To grill crab legs, you need to brush olive oil on all sides of the legs to prevent them from sticking. Then place the crab legs on a hot grill of 300°F for about 5 minutes. Next, turn them over and cook for another 5 minutes until they are heated all the way through. Remove from the grill and serve with butter or sauce.
