Grilled Alaskan King Crab Legs with Simple Seafood Marinade

Good Friday morning all! I hope everyone is having an awesome Friday and has some rockin' plans for Labor Day. I have a lot of relaxation planned for myself. Lobster Gram was cool enough to close the office all weekend long, so all of my lobster loving cohorts get a chance to have a nice long three day weekend. Thanks Dan!
So last night's dinner was awesome. I prepared some simple seafood marinade and grilled up some Alaskan King Crab legs from Lobster Gram on the indoor grill. I also brought home a Manhattan Clam Chowder (I could live on this soup) and a Cookies N' Creme Cake for dessert. I whipped up some fried potatoes to enjoy with the crab, and both the cameraman/sous chef and I were stuffed beyond reason when the meal was complete.
The crab legs were the most flavorful I have had in a long time. The simple seafood marinade augmented all of the natural deliciousness of the crab, and would actually go well on anything from Lobster to fin fish. I intend to try this one again with a lot of different types of seafood.
And on that note, here is the recipe and how to video for the Simple Seafood Sauce and Alaskan King Crab legs. Happy Eating foodies! See you all soon with some great images.
