Does your family love seafood during the holidays? My family not only loves it, but it has become a special tradition each year to enjoy a big platter of crab legs. (My Crab Cakes are always on the menu for New Years Eve!)  One of the many reasons I love crab is the fact that it can be as fancy or as informal as you want it to be.  Perfect for a formal holiday party or dinner, crab is always a showstopper. However, for my family, it’s more of a casual sit-around-the-table and dig-in kind of affair.  Any way you have it, these Oven Baked Snow Crab Legs from ALDI are amazing!

Step 2: Place the thawed crab legs on a shallow baking sheet

You can thaw the crab legs a couple of ways; either thaw in the refrigerator for 12-18 hours (recommended), or place under running water for 3-5 minutes. Once thawed, you’ll then place the crab legs on a shallow baking sheet that has been lined with foil.

Step 3: Top with Lemon, Garlic, Butter and Seasoning

Start by squeezing the juice of one lemon over the top of the crab. Next, sprinkle the Stonemill Minced Garlic. I like having a jar of this garlic on hand – it’s definitely a time saver over mincing individual cloves of garlic. Next, cut up 4 tablespoons of butter into small chunks, and place over the top of the crab. Lastly, sprinkle with the Stonemill Lemon Pepper.

Step 4: Bake the Crab

Once you have the crab legs topped with the lemon, garlic, butter and seasoning, they are ready to go into the oven.  Because the crab is already pre-cooked, it doesn’t need long to bake. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes, which is the perfect amount of time to reheat the crab.
