This was tonight’s dinner, and it could not be easier, a few spices, some olive oil, and a nice portion of crab legs. And, my husband and I had a nice Air Fryer Cajun Crab Legs Feast.
If you have never had crab legs, they are really simple to cook or in my case, air fryer, and they create a lot of great flavors. I serve them with melted butter for dipping.
If you have never had or prepared crab legs, I will give you some pointers.
What Can You Season Crab Legs With?
You can season them from nothing, salt, and pepper, to garlic and herb seasoning. I used a simple Cajun seasoning, but a great one I would try next time is Old Bay Seasoning.
What Are Crab Legs?
If you have never seen these in the grocery store. They are nothing more than the legs from a crab.
There are two different types of crab legs you can purchase. They are Snow Crab and King Crab. The really thick ones are called King Crab, and the smaller ones are called snow crab. Actually, the King Crabs legs are shorter than the Snow Crabs.
What Do They Taste Like?
It is a sweet, rich meat, that reminds me of lobster meat. They a similar texture as well.
What To Serve Crab Legs With?
I usually serve mine with a side of melted butter. My husband likes his with a shake or two of Old Bay Seasoning, and lemon wedges.
