- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons white or yellow miso
- 2 tablespoons fresh
- Meyer-lemon juice or regular lemon juice
- 4 to 5 pounds Alaska king-crab legs, thawed
Bring butter to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-low, skimming foam from surface. Remove from heat; let stand until milk solids sink to bottom. Slowly pour clarified butter into a small bowl, leaving milk solids behind; discard solids. Stir in miso and lemon juice. Serve crab legs, with warm butter mixture alongside.
