Crab legs

This isn't exactly a recipe, and it's far from original, but it's such a perfect low-carb meal and it's something we rarely eat at home. My local Albertson's supermarket sells crab legs for $4.99/lb, not exactly cheap, but certainly affordable at least every once in a while. It's also perfect for those looking to get more protein without too many calories. A 3 oz serving has 16 grams of protein, along with 0 carbs and only 1 gram of fat.


  • As many frozen crab legs as you want/can fit into your pot
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 lemon, cut into chunky eighths

Fill a large pasta pot (I use this one, but a regular soup pot is fine too) with a couple inches of water and bring to a boil. Add the crab legs and cover them liberally with lots and lots of Old Bay. Cover with the pot lid; if it won't fit (due to crab legs sticking out), cover it with a few layers of foil. Steam for 5-7 minutes or until done. Serve on a tray with lemon wedges scattered throughout. Serve with melted butter and/or sugar-free cocktail sauce*.

*Sugar free cocktail sauce: Combine unsweetened ketchup or Splenda-sweetened ketchup, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and pepper to taste.
