Our Alaskan Red King Crab legs are thick, weighing between ? and ½ pound a piece. Each leg provides large hunks of sweet, juicy crab meat. All of our Alaskan Red King Crab is cooked and frozen after being caught during the peak of harvesting season to ensure incredible texture and flavor. Alaskan Red King Crab leg pieces from Maine Lobster Now are currently available in 1-pound packages.
Caught predominantly in the Bering Sea of Alaska during the cold months between October and January, the Alaskan Red King Crab is a delicacy savored by many. These enormous crustaceans yield more meat than any other crab. As a fully-grown adult, a male Alaskan Red King Crab can weigh up to 24 pounds. However, most of the crabs caught and sold commercially fall somewhere in the 5 to 6-pound range — which is still enormous.
When the crabs are caught, they have a brown, red tone. After being cooked they develop the vibrant red orange hue they are famous for. Because they are caught, cooked, and frozen right away, the Alaskan Red King Crab can be enjoyed year-round with just as much flavor as ever despite the short harvesting season. They make for the perfect addition to any meal.
Already broken up a bit, Alaskan Red King Crab leg pieces are an ideal option to enjoy right out of the shell. They come pre-cooked so all you have to do is heat them up. They pair well with your favorite cocktail sauce or butter. If you feel like making something extra special, we recommend mixing cocktail sauce, mayo, some lemon juice, and fresh lemon zest for dipping. Bon Appetit!
