This has been gnawing at me for several years now and I'd like to get other people's thoughts on the matter. I fell in love with snow crab legs back in the late 1970s when working at a restaurant that offered them on its Friday nite seafood buffet. The sweetness of the meat endeared them to me. Eventually, I transitioned to a non-crab leg serving place and stopped eating them. Upon discovering Vegas buffets, my crab leg consumption picked up after a 20-year hiatus. Here's the problem though - when did crab legs go from succulent sweetness to tasting more like a salt lick? I'm talking all varieties, not just snow crab. And, the cold ones are worse than those served boiled or steamed. Still, all are way too salty. Lately, I've resorted to having the server bring me a cup of hot water (no tea please) so I can re-soak. That helps a little, but not enough. This week, I had warm king legs at the Bellagio and warm snow legs at the Aria. Same thing at both places - salty product. It's a shame because the legs at Bellagio were the biggest I've ever encountered on a buffet. I'm reaching the point of giving up on them, but gosh, I hate to because of the rememberance of how good they used to be.
