Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. Red King Crab legs, thawed if necessary

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp. Cajun Spice Mixture

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  • 1/4 cup beer

  • 1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice

With a sharp knife, cut crab legs into 2 inch long pieces. Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and Cajun Spice Mixture; sauté 1 to 2 minutes. Add crab and remaining ingredients except rice. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring gently. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until crab is well heated. Serve crab and sauce over rice.
