Sauteed King Crab Legs

Before we head into the fall, let's get the last of the good summer crab, eh? Your best bet is to get the best-looking crab- you can swap out whatever looks and smells the best to you - and have the seafood monger steam it for you. Then it's a quick and easy dish when you get home.
