  1. 3lb King Crab Legs
  2. 1 cup flour
  3. 1 tsp paprika
  4. 1 tsp garlic powder
  5. 1 tsp onion powder
  6. 1/2 tsp salt
  7. 1/4 tsp black pepper
  8. 2/3 cup beer
  9. Stainless Steel Seafood Shears



  1. 1 cup frying oil
  2. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  3. 1 tbsp whole-grain mustard
  4. 1 tsp lemon juice
  5. 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  6. 1 tsp capers, chopped
  7. 1 garlic clove, minced
  8. Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Start by cooking the king crab in boiling water for 5-8 minutes. Once cooked, remove the crab from the water and let it cool before removing the meat from the shells.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and beer. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes to absorb the flavors. Then, toss the crab legs into the batter, ensuring they are well coated. Set the crab legs aside.
  3. Heat the frying oil in a pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the crab legs into the pan and fry them until they turn a beautiful golden brown color. This should take a few minutes on each side. Once fried, remove the crab legs from the pan and set them aside to cool.
  4. While the crab legs are cooling, prepare the sauce by combining the mayonnaise, whole grain mustard, lemon juice, hot sauce, capers, minced garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Stir well until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  5. Dig in! Serve the crispy beer-battered king crab legs alongside the sauce and enjoy!
