Steaming Up Some Alaskan King Crab Legs!

I’m so excited to be partnered once again, with Wild Alaska Seafood.  Alaska provides us with some of the best, freshest, sustainable seafood you can find.  Recently, I decided to prepare some delicious King Crab Legs straight from Alaskan waters.

King Crab Legs are fun to eat and the meat is unmatched in tenderness, sweetness and delicate flavor.  It’s so easy to cook and fun to crack open and enjoy.  Because they are so delicious, just a few ingredients are needed to cook them up and eat.
