Grilled King Crab Legs

Grilled king crab legs' tasty flesh makes them a delicacy that offers many nutritional benefits, including a heart-healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids, protein and many vitamins and minerals. One serving provides 614mg of omega-3 fatty acids, making it an excellent food source for this nutrient. According to the American Heart Association, omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and help prevent low-density lipoprotein (LDL or "bad") cholesterol from adhering to artery walls.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 pounds king crab legs, thawed if frozen

2 tablespoons olive oil (for brushing sides of crab legs)

2 tablespoons finely chopped onions or shallots

1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped

1 cup dry white wine

½ cup olive oil

Recipe Instructions:

To make the sauce, in a small saucepan over medium heat combine onions or shallots, garlic and wine. Bring mixture to a boil; cook and stir 10 to 12 minutes or until reduced by half. Gradually add olive oil (if using butter-stir until melted). Cook and stir 2 to 3 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a small serving bowl. Set side.

Preheat grill (oven or outdoor) to medium (300 degrees F to 350 degrees F). Using kitchen shears, if desired, cut along one side of the crab legs shell so meat can be removed easily after grilling. Brush both sides of crab legs with the two tablespoons of olive oil.

Place crab legs on grill. Grill 5 to 6 minutes per side, being careful not to let shells char. Remove from grill and serve with sauce.

Makes 4 servings.
