I was new to crab legs, so a bit hessitant. These were very easy and YUMMY! I like the dip in just melted butter... melt in your mouth! The only hard part is getting the crab leg out of the shell- but that happens anyway you cook them. Be patient, have lots of napkins and enjoy :)

Absolutely YUMMY!!! These remind me of the crab legs at a local chinese food buffet - but MUCH more delicious!
