  • 4-5 king crab legs

  • Butter Sauce Ingredients: 

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter (melted)

  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)

  • 1 tsp of Tony Chachere’s Spices N’ Herbs Seasoning

1. Cut a pocket into the crab legs to expose one side of the meat using kitchen shears.
2. In a bowl, combine all the butter sauce ingredients. Mix until well combined.
3. Evenly pour the butter over each crab leg.
4. Top them with the Italian breadcrumbs and a generous amount of parmesan.
5. Place the crab legs on a hot charcoal grill for 3-5 minutes until the butter starts to bubble and the cheese melts.
6. If you do not have a grill, you can place them under the broiler on high for about 3 minutes until the cheese starts to brown.
7. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
