Simmered Alaska King Crab legs (Snow or Dungeness Crab) in a large heavy Stockpot (or Dutch oven) cooked with Lemongrass, Garlic, Ginger and Kosher salt seasonings.
The cooked frozen Crab legs must be thawed prior to cooking. For best results, we recommend that cooked frozen Crab legs thaw overnight in your refrigerator to keep them plenty chilled before you cook. (thaw overnight in the fridge makes them much more tender than if you were to cook them frozen.) Alternatively, you can also thaw cooked frozen Crab legs in a Colander and rinse under cold running water for several minutes.
The water should come up to the halfway point of the Stockpot. Add in the Lemongrass, Garlic, Ginger and Kosher salt, and heat the water to boiling over medium-high to high heat.
Reduce the heat to Simmer (Medium-low heat, gentle bubbling in the pot. Temperature ranging from 180°F to 205°F) and cook the thawed Crab legs in uncovered the Stockpot for 3 to 4 minutes until heated-through.
Remove Crab from liquid and drain well before place them on a serving platter to enjoy immediately.
If desired, you can also serve the Crab legs with dipping sauce.
