Is frozen crab already cooked?

Most frozen crab legs are already pre-cooked so they will just need to be heated. When cooking frozen crab legs, we recommend that you place them in a colander or steamer over rapidly boiling water. You will need to cover the pot and steam your frozen crab legs for about ten minutes or until they are completely heated.
