How do you reheat crab legs?

DH and I had a gift certificate for Red Lobster, so we went out to lunch today. I got snow crab legs, but couldn't eat them all. I've never reheated crab legs before. Can they be put in the microwave? I guess I could steam them, but I'm not sure I have the equipment for that. Has anyone ever reheated those successfully?

I like my crab legs cold so I'm not much help but I would say toaster oven over microwave. Or just call red lobster and ask? I'm sure you're not the first person to wonder how this is done. They might have suggestions

I would never try to reheat crab. Instead why not take the crab meat out of the shells and use it for crab salads? Do so quickly because crab does not keep well in the refer for more than a day.

If you don't have a steamer you can just put an inch or so of water in a large pot, then put the legs in when it starts to boil and cover it to keep the steam in. It won't take long to heat them - 5 minutes should do it.
And I could come help you with that!!!!

Put them on a cookie sheet and cook them at a low temp. in the oven. You can put a little bit of water so that they don't dry out.
