Caught off the coast of Alaska and in some parts of Russian and international waters, the Alaskan Red King crab is a prized catch for anyone familiar with the treacherous journey it takes to reach this bountiful reward. With such a short season for Alaskan Red King crab spanning from October to January, this delectable catch has become an iconic delicacy that’s well worth the handsome price-tag.
In the icy cold waters of the Alaskan coast, these crabs are caught by the thousands, and are cooked, frozen, and shipped across countless locations across the world until the next season comes rolling around the corner. So, you can expect these crabs to fly off of shelves in a snap because of the high demand that swarms their prized meat.
The Alaskan Red King crab is a beautiful specimen that boasts a lively aesthetic as it ventures through the chilly waters off of the Alaskan coast. In the wild, Alaskan Reds flaunt deep reddish-brown shells, sometimes dabbling close to burgundy. Their spiky exteriors - large and powerful - are definitely a breath-taking sight to behold.
Once cooked, the shells on these massive sea dwellers change from deep dark burgundy to an energetic bright red. The meat becomes snow white, adding a beautiful contrast to the vibrant shells that make them exceptionally eye-catching when cracked open and laid out on a plate.
The legs on the adult Alaskan Red are one of the most coveted parts. Spanning close to 2 feet in length, these sizable segments are ever enticing and inviting as a world-class delicacy.
