Wild Caught – Fully Cooked and Blast Frozen
Jumbo king crabs are the largest crab caught in the world and each crab cluster is exploding with succulent crab meat you and your family will love. These crabs are fully cooked and blast frozen right after being caught. This process is primarily because the fishing season is so short, but the freezing method is second to none. Blast freezing will drop the temperature so quickly on a product that the ice crystals don’t break the cell wall. If you just throw a steak in the freezer, the freezing time is much longer, which creates larger ice crystals which in turn damage the cell membrane. These crabs tastes just as fresh in your living room than if you went to Alaska yourself.
King Crab Contains Substantial Nutritional Benefits
Many people today try to eat as healthy as possible. They don’t want the worry that comes with eating modified foods. The Alaskan crabs we offer for sale online were caught in the Pacific, and they are not raised with antibiotics, hormones or any preservatives. King crab is high in protein and low in fat. The sweet flesh of the king crab is spiked with zinc... a whopping seven milligrams per 3.5-ounce serving.
Why care about your intake of zinc? The experts recommend it. “Zinc is an antioxidant, but more important, it helps support healthy bone mass and immune function,” says Susan Bowerman, assistant director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of California at Los Angeles.
Zinc is just one of the many health benefits that make Alaskan king crab legs superior to many other seafoods. After you taste crab from Maine Lobster Now, you’ll never trust another company to provide you with Alaskan king crab again.

Beyond your hankering for delectable crab, have you ever wanted to learn more about the Alaskan red king crab? Get your education right here, the place where you can always buy the freshest pre-cooked, blast frozen Alaskan king crab legs and king crab claws at competitive prices.
Where should you start with your education on Alaskan king crab? We can start with the basics. King crabs get their name because of their size. If you are a crab lover, you know that most crabs are relatively unmemorable. Not Alaskan king crabs. King crabs are generally no less than 10 or 11 pounds when caught, and some of the massive giants have clocked in at a respectable 24 pounds.
In terms of their legs, king crabs have five sets. One set is reserved for pincher movements. The other four sets help the Alaskan red king crab scurry across the sea floor — and they can move when they want to! King crabs have been known to cover roughly 100 miles when they are migrating. No wonder their legs are so sturdy. They need to be strong and agile to keep the king crab in motion.
The Alaskan red king crab has long been a preferred seafood delicacy in all parts of the world. However, inhabitants of certain parts of North America and Asia seem to use the crab meat as a major ingredient in popular dishes. Perhaps some of your most beloved family meals include king crab meat.
