Grilled Crab Legs

Grilled Crab Legs is such a treat in the summer, this foolproof recipe is so easy and works with king crab legs, Dungeness crab legs and snow crab legs!

Grilling Crab Legs is so easy – it’s my favorite method to cook them! There’s no looking for a big pot or making a mess in the kitchen. Just thaw the legs and heat them on the grill. Then crack them open and enjoy! Some of my other favorite ways to eat crab are Baked Crab Cakes, Crab Cauliflower Fried “Rice” and Tomato, Corn, Crab and Avocado Salad.

I grilled red king crab legs recently for my family as a treat because they love them! But you can grill any type of crab leg. Golden King, Dungeness crab legs and snow crab legs are two other good options. King crabs are probably the most popular type of crab as they are generally the largest and therefore, have the most meat. Snow crabs are similar to king crabs but have thinner legs. Dungeness crabs have the smallest legs of the three and are known for their very sweet meat.

Most Alaskan king crab legs come frozen and pre-cooked, so really all you’re doing is thawing and reheating them. It’s best to thaw your legs before grilling so they heat up evenly on the inside.
