These legs from the king of crabs come already cooked at your supermarket usually previously frozen, so we wont have to boil them long to finish them off. But we do want to give them a long enough bath to get the flavor of garlic into the meat. To aid in this process we need to poke several holes in the shell along each leg so that the garlic water can seep in. Use the handle end of a nutcracker the kind that is often serve with crab to help crack the shells, or the back end of a wooden spoon to make those holes. This step also makes removing the shells easier when eating the crab. And you don't have to worry about peeling the garlic cloves. Just pound em flat with a mallet or foil-wrapped brick and toss em into the water.
