Let's Cook!

King crab claws, in chilli and garlic
Step 1

Break the king crab claws into 3/4 sections per arm using a cleaver being careful to remove any splintered pieces of shell. At this stage you can either leave in the shell to enjoy cathartically removing as you eat them or you can cut down each shell and remove the chunks of meat before proceeding so you can eat more delicately… either way the cooking process is the same
