Got a nice 2 pounder last week already steamed and frozen.

Questions
1) How long can I keep it in the freezer? Should I use it within a week or can it stay for a month?
2) How should I reheat? I do NOT have a steam pot. Can I still steam it in a regular pot?
-If so how?
-If not...what should I do....bake?


Thanks.

I know all king crab, etc., is precooked. You can keep for a month if frozen, but when you cook it bring a pot with water to cover it to boiling with some seasonings, drop it in cover and cook for about 5 minutes. You want to only heat it...have everything else ready to go if you want it hot

Be careful boiling frozen crab legs. Thaw them first or your risk the meat being tough and stringy.

You could always wet a paper towel, cover them and microwave for 3-5 minutes. Add more time if they are still cold to the touch.
