The recipes I see on the internet for crab legs always serve them hot, immediately after boiling. Does anyone here ever put them on ice after boiling, and eat them chilled?

I only eat crab legs chilled - it enhances the flavor.

I prefer them on a plate. actually, I like them cold, cool, or room temperature. Crab legs are generally cooked on the boat & frozen, right? I would think cooking them to "hot" would overcook the meat--plus--who wants to handle hot crab legs?

Just to add--I usually steam them, or quickly stir them with whatever warmed sauce I'm using, then serve.
