Pour the clarified butter back into the saucepan, simmer over low heat and mix in Cajun Seasoning (1 Tbsp) .
Step 5
Squeeze in and mix the juiced Lemon (1) . Bring to a simmer and set aside.

Juice Lemons (7) into a bowl. In a large rocket pot that fits your crab legs, add Water (16 cups) and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Step 7
Sprinkle in Cajun Seasoning (3 Tbsp) .
Step 8
