The most coveted part of any crab would have to be the claws. Large and juicy, the contents of the claws make for a sweet, buttery symphony in your mouth. At Maine Lobster Now, we offer the best Alaskan Red King Crab claws, cooked and frozen during peak harvesting season to maintain flavor and texture. You can purchase our Alaskan Red King Crab claws in 1-pound portions.
Alaskan Red King Crabs have a short harvesting season between October and January, which mostly takes place in the Bering Sea off of Alaska’s coast. Fishermen literally risk their lives, braving heavy weather, to harvest this delicacy. The catch in a single season has to be more than enough to supply all seafood lovers worldwide for the entire year.
In the icy waters of the Bering Sea, the Alaskan Red King Crab has an earthy, red tone. During the cooking process the shell turns into a more vibrant crimson shade. An Alaskan Red King Crab can weigh up to 24 pounds as a fully mature adult. Most of the crabs caught commercially however fall somewhere in the 5 to 6-pound range. The claws alone are a sight to behold, offering up plenty of meat for all of your favorite recipes.
Eating crab claws is a unique experience altogether. Removing the meat from the claws can require some effort, but we promise that once you get it out, it is more than worth it. The large pieces of meat yielded from Alaskan Red King Crab claws are perfect for larger, more substantial dishes like crab cakes. Like crab leg meat, crab claw meat also works well for stews and dips. However, the best way to enjoy the claws in our opinion just might be right out of the shell after they have been steamed.
Whether you’re throwing a party or simply hoping to put together a delicious dinner for the family, we’ve got you covered.
