Snow crab legs-how to cook & how much per person?

I want to make a special dinner at home and snow crab legs are on sale this week.  How do I cook snow crab legs and how many pounds for each of us should I get?

Re: Snow crab legs-how to cook & how much per person?

  • Big pot of boiling water, seasoned with old bay and salt.

    1 to 1 1/2 lbs per person should be plenty. 

  • Everyone's different, but we actually do a half pound per person and that fills us up - with potatoes and veggies on the side.


    The legs are already cooked - so any cooking preparation should be quick.  I really like to steam my legs so they cook quickly and don't get rubbery.  I also will use the meat in things like crabmeat terrapin or deviled crab.
