Garlic Butter Crab Legs


Butter Garlic Crab
This easy seafood dish is a great, low-carb weekday meal - it's flavorful, fast and (if you buy crab legs in season) cheap.
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 2
  • 4 large crab legs
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • 2 to 3 green chilies, minced
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1½ Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  1. With the help of a clean, unused tooth brush, clean the crab legs thoroughly.
  2. Take a heavy bottomed pot and put it on medium flame. Add water and bring to a boil. Add the crabs and little salt.
  3. Take the crab legs out after about 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Heat a wok or large pan on medium flame. Add olive oil and then, after a few seconds, add the butter.
  5. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add green chilies and cook for 5 more seconds.
  6. Add the crab. Season with little salt and toss well.
  7. Cover the wok with a lid and simmer it for 8 to 10 minutes. Check often to avoid burning.
  8. Turn off the flame when the crab has turned reddish pink in color. Serve hot and enjoy!
