Also, you don't need to cook King Crab or Snow Crab, you just need to heat it up. They are all sold pre-cooked. Crab deteriorates quickly after it dies, you can never cook a dead crab and eat it. You have to cook crabs while still alive. So when you buy crab at the store that is NOT still moving, you just heat it up by steaming or boiling quickly, then eat it. Live crabs are a different story, but you cannot buy live king or snow crabs anywhere (except maybe in Alaska) - they are huge creatures.
I was going to post pretty much the same thing. All the crabs that you purchase (unless they're alive) have been cooked (normally by steaming them). The best way to re-heat them without losing too much flavor (i.e. leaving all the crabbiness in the water) is to flash steam them. And, the quickest way to do that is to heat them up in the microwave. The method is as follows:
Sprinkle a few paper towels with water (from a spritzer bottle), then wrap 4-5 crab legs in the paper towel and then wrap it all in plastic wrap (you might find that cutting the legs in half works best). Place in your microwave and blast them on HIGH for about 2 minutes, depending on how powerful your microwave is. Pull them out, allow them to cool on the counter for about 2-3 minutes, then open the pouch and consume!
