Simple Grilled King Crab Legs

If you are looking for something easy to make, and are tired of the usual steak or salmon on the grill, try these King which are plentiful at the moment, and often on sale, as these were at my local Vons store.

Serve with pita bread, and a simple green salad tossed in oil and vinegar, and you have a great meal in minutes.

Ingredients (serves 2)

Approx. 1 lb King Crab Legs
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2-3 scallions
Lemon Pepper
Olive Oil
1/2 ounce Butter
English Parsley to garnish

  1. Rinse the Crab Legs and cut into pieces approximately 2-3 inches long.
  2. Place in a foil tray, or make a tray from double folded tin foil and scrunching up the edges.
  3. Brush with olive oil and lemon juice.
  4. Cut the scallions into pieces approximately 2 inches long and place on top of crab.
  5. Sprinkle with lemon pepper.
  6. Dot butter on top of crab and cover with foil.
  7. Grill outdoors over medium heat for 8-10 minutes
  8. Remove from grill and place in serving dish. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon wedges.
A Mediterranean salad served with pita bread, or crunchy French bread makes a great side dish with this meal.

To make the , simply chop cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, spring greens (or any vegetable you like). Mix all ingredients together in a salad bowl, and toss with light olive oil, red wine vinegar, and a dash of sea salt.
