The holidays are approaching and you know what that means: hors d'oeuvres! While we love traditional crab cakes and a good shrimp cocktail, this season we're trying something new.  Sweet meets heat in this Korean-inspired dish that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Serve up the best crabbetizer out there with this recipe:


  • 2 lbs Extra Large Red King Crab Legs
  • 1 pack of wood skewers
  • 1 Tsp of Gochujang Korean red pepper paste
  • 1/2 tsp of red miso paste
  • Zest and juice from 1/2 of a lime
  • 1/4 tsp of sesame oil
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Green onions, cut thin


  1. Add all sauce ingredients, reserving the sesame seeds and green onions, to a mixing bowl and whisk to a smooth consistency.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. While the sauce chills, cut the crab legs open using your AKC Kitchen Shears.  Skewer the crab legs and put them on a tray in the refrigerator until the sauce has chilled.
  3. Dress one side of the crab skewer with a smear of sauce then sprinkle on the sesame seeds and green onions as your garnish.
  4. Serve on a bed of greens as a passed hors d'oeuvre or build a salad and use the crab as your protein.
  5. Enjoy!
