Here Are Five Sides That Compliment Any Crab Leg Dinner

Crab legs are arguably the tastiest and most fulfilling part of the crab species. Garnished with the dynamic duo of garlic and butter can provide a pleasurable experience. If you want to prepare a crab leg dinner but need ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Here are five sides you can prepare with your next crab leg dinner.


Try these sides with your next crab leg dinner.

Creamed Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes topped with seasonings like rosemary and thyme can enhance the taste of your dish. You can also opt for garlic butter and sour cream for a delightful taste. Potatoes are filling and are a nice touch for any seafood-inspired feast or dish.

Grilled Corn On the Cob

This vegetable is often a regular staple within seafood boils. Cooking your corn on the grill provides a unique flavor and contrasting taste with your crab legs. You can add butter and seasonings like Old Bay and salt to your corn on the cob. Also, cooking sweet corn on the cob is the way to go as the sweet taste provides a fantastic experience.

Rice Pilaf

Rice is a common side found in many different meals. Rice pilaf is one of the many variations of rice that you can find available. To make your rice pilaf, you need chicken broth, olive oil, pepper, onion powder, and white or brown rice. You can also use jasmine rice for a different taste.

Baked Mac And Cheese

Baked macaroni and cheese is another phenomenal addition to any meal but its’ even more phenomenal when paired with crab legs. Like rice, there are many different variations of macaroni and cheese. Some popular ones include lobster mac and cheese or fondue-styled macaroni and cheese with bacon.

Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are sometimes served as an appetizer or an appealing side dish. Portabella mushrooms are great for stuffing with various toppings. Some popular stuffed mushroom toppings include garlic, cheese, butter, and breadcrumbs. You can prepare your stuffed mushrooms either by baking or grilling them.
