    Alaskan king crab have a sweet and succulent flavor with moist, firm and rich meat. The claw and leg meat is somewhat firmer than the body meat. King crab is always pre-cooked and can be served either hot or cold. Popular preparation methods include broiling with butter, grilling, sauteing, and steaming. Crab meat is an excellent addition to soups, stews, salads and pastas. All crab legs are harvested from the icy waters of the Bering Sea & North Pacific Ocean.

    Handling & Preparation

    Your king crab and/or snow crab legs will arrive precooked and frozen in a specially designated cooler. You can keep thawed crab legs refrigerated (41°F) safely for up to two days. They will maintain their quality and good taste for up to four months in your freezer.

    Crab legs are easy to prepare. Gently steam for five minutes or until the meat is warm. You can also drop them into boiling water with your favorite seasonings for five minutes. Either method will produce the most delicious crab legs!

    3 lbs of crab legs will serve 3 to 4 people.
