  • Crab legs and claws cooked (if frozen, thaw overnight in the fridge first). I used Alaskan King Crab. You can use snow crab too, but you might want to shorten the cooking time.
  • Olive oil
  • Lemons some juiced, some halved
  • Clarified butter for serving


  • Note: If your legs are too long to fit in the Big Easy basket, just take a sharp knife and split them.
  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Squeeze a little lemon juice into some olive oil and brush the legs and claws.
  • Place legs and claws in the Big Easy basket along with the remaining lemons (halved first).
  • Place basket in the Big Easy and cook for 6 minutes. Larger legs or more legs might take longer. I pulled a small leg out after 6 minutes for a quick test and found it to be perfect.
  • Serve hot with the roasted lemons and clarified butter for dipping.
