Dinner in Under Ten Minutes (Seriously!)

Dungeness crab was on sale at Kroger for $5.99 a pound, who can pass up a deal like that? Combine that with fresh corn on the cob and a hearty green salad and you have a meal that can be made in under ten minutes flat. You cannot get faster than that and you cannot find a meal that screams summer more than fresh crab legs, corn and salad.
Dungeness Crab Legs, Maryland Style
serves 4

3 to 4 pounds Dungeness crab legs
3 tablespoons Old Bay, divided
1/3 cup butter
1 lemon

In a larger steamer pot, add 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons Old Bay.  Once the water is boiling, add the crab legs and cover the pot.  Steam for 3 to 5 minutes, until the crab is heated through.

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter, the remaining tablespoon of Old Bay and the juice of half the lemon.  Cut the remaining lemon into wedges for serving.

Serve the crab legs with the melted butter and lemon wedges, along with a nutcracker.
