If you can find whole large crab legs, this is a great way to prepare them that is more exciting that just steaming or boiling. This would be great with prawns as well.


Serves: 2 

  • 500g crab legs, thawed if necessary
  • 65g butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Cut a slit, lengthways, into the shell of each piece of crab.
  2. Melt the butter in a large frypan over medium heat; cook the garlic in the butter until translucent; stir in the parsley, salt and pepper. Continue to heat mixture until bubbling. Add the crab legs; toss to coat; allow to simmer in the butter mixture until completely heated, 5 to 6 minutes.
