Whole 1/3 - 1/2 lbs Alaskan Red King Crab Legs and Claws

Our Alaskan Red King Crab Legs are large, offering huge hunks of meat in each claw and leg. The Alaskan Red King Crab is the prized catch for fishermen who brave the weather and waters off of the Alaskan coast. This seasonal crab is harvested in late October all the way to January, giving seamen a short window of opportunity to catch several hundred pounds to satisfy the demand for these delicacies across the globe.

During the season, some hundreds of ships flock to the treacherous waters to find their keep and collect as many thousands of pounds of these massive red crabs as they can. And once these vessels reach the dock, the crabs begin their journey from the chilly waters of the Bering sea to the porcelain plates of eager diners.

The Burgundy Jewel of the Bering Sea

The cold, blue waters of the Bering Sea are home to some interesting creatures, but none are as popular or as highly sought-after as the Alaskan Red King Crab. These titanic crabs can have a body of up to a foot in diameter, with legs that can span up to 5 feet. Their dark red to burgundy shells make a stark contrast with the crystal blue waters where they live, and make them even more appealing to the senses.

Once they’re caught, these crabs are cooked and frozen to preserve the taste and texture of their prized meat. As they boil, the shells change from a deep, dark, rich red color, and turn into a bright scarlet hue, even bordering on orange. Their cooked meat - flawless white with flecks of crimson - is soft, buttery, and smooth, satisfying the discriminating taste of even the most critical food enthusiasts.

Because of the short window of opportunity that fishermen have to catch these prized crabs, any supply that’s collected from the Alaskan Red season is made to last the entire year until the ships can set sail once more to fight the treacherous conditions of the Bering Sea and restore the depleted supply.

Delectable Legs for All Occasions

The Alaskan Red King Crab has the meatiest legs on any crab - bar none. These humongous segments can measure several feet in length, making them the perfect centerpiece for a variety of recipes. Enjoy them with a selection of sauces, add them to a stew, or simply steam them and eat straight out of the shell - the opportunities are endless with these versatile legs that are sure to wow your guests.
