. Hot Bacon Crab Legs
Dive into a delicious dish like you’ve never experienced before! Hot Bacon Crab Legs are a unique treat that satisfy your craving for seafood and savory bacon. In this article, you’ll find out how to make this amazing dish.
This mouth-watering dish starts with two pounds of crab legs. Start by bringing a large pot of saline water to a boil. Place the crab legs into the boiling water, cover, and let cook for about five minutes. Once cooked, strain the crab legs and immediately rinse them with cold water. Once cooled off, use kitchen shears to separate the sections of the crab legs.
Next, assemble your other ingredients. You’ll need one pound of thick cut bacon, two tablespoons of butter, two cloves of garlic and two tablespoons of fresh parsley (chopped). Also, have nearby Maldon sea salt, black pepper, and unsalted butter for finishing touches.
Once you have your ingredients ready, it’s time to cook! Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Place a large baking sheet inside and lay the bacon strips onto it. Place the baking sheet into the oven and let cook for fifteen minutes. Pull out the baking sheet at the fifteen minute mark and flip the bacon over. Place it back into the oven and let it cook for an additional ten to fifteen minutes, or until crisp.
While the bacon cooks, melt two tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until it starts to become fragrant. Next, add the crab sections and cook them for one to two minutes on each side, or until they turn a light golden color.
Next, add the parsley and season the crab with the Maldon sea salt and black pepper. Gently toss the crab and parsley together to ensure everything is evenly coated.
Now it’s time to assemble the Hot Bacon Crab Legs. Place about five crab sections onto a large baking sheet. Place a strip of bacon onto each section of crab and use a toothpick to secure it. Place the baking sheet onto the middle oven rack and bake for about twenty minutes.
Once done, use an oven mitt to remove the baking sheet. Finally, use a butter knife to lightly spread the unsalted butter over the tops of the crab legs. This will give an extra bit of flavor and help the bacon to crisp.
Your Hot Bacon Crab Legs are now ready to enjoy! Serve with a side of melted butter or a seasonal dip.
