  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5lbs of crab legs (enough for 4 people or you can adjust)
  • more melted butter (to serve)

Method of preparation:

Before you start grilling, make sure your crab legs are fully defrosted. This can take several hours in the fridge, so plan ahead.

Preheat your barbecue to medium heat, around 375°F. Brush the grates with oil to prevent sticking.

Brush the crab legs with the melted butter and season with the garlic powder.

Place the crab legs on the barbecue, shell side down. Grill for 4-5 minutes, then turn and grill for a further 4-5 minutes. The crab legs should be cooked through and lightly charred.

Serve and enjoy! Remove the crab legs from the barbecue and serve hot. Serve with more melted butter for dipping.
