Responsibly Harvested Alaskan King Crab Meat

At Maine Lobster Now, we know the long-term sustainability of seafood products is an issue deeply connected to Maine and other coastal communities all across the world. In order to offer you Alaskan king crab meat today and in the future, we work only with fisheries that follow all local, federal, and international rules and regulations to responsibly harvest king crab to ensure continued access to these crustaceans for future generations.

Unmatched Quality and Freshness

Maine Lobster Now sources crabmeat to be the freshest, tastiest it can be for our customers. Prized by local fishermen, our Alaskan king crabs are caught in the frigid waters off Alaska and Norway. When it lands at the docks, it is immediately cooked, sometimes brined, and flash-frozen before it’s shipped directly to us. It’s impossible to experience fresher Alaskan king crab unless you take a boat out on the water and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend).

Where Your Crab Comes From

As part of our commitment to sustainable seafood, Maine Lobster Now responsibly sources red king crabs from two distinct regions of the world. Traditionally, Alaskan red king crab has been sourced from, you guessed it, the Alaskan coast in the Bering Sea.

We also source Alaskan red king crab from a growing, invasive population that migrated north of Norway. This helps Norway combat the threat and maintain a more viable ecosystem in their waterways while ensuring the beloved seafood is caught using traditional, sustainable methods.

Unlike many of our competitors, we do not source our crabs from Russia, due to lax oversight and accountability of sustainable fishing practices in the region.

Serving Size

Know the Serving Size of Colossal Alaskan King Crab Legs

Ordering Alaskan king crab legs can be confusing since the weight includes both the hard exoskeleton and the meat inside. We’ll help you sort out serving sizes. On average, a Colossal King Crab Leg is about .75 lbs., or 12 oz. Crab legs yield about 50% meat, so 1 leg contains about 6 oz. of meat. The standard portion size is 5 oz.

So that means 1 Colossal Alaskan King Crab Leg will be enough to feed 1 person when served with classic New England appetizers or side dishes to complement the meal. We recommend red potatoes, great for baking, frying, or mashing, or Applewood-Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Scallops. Round out your Maine crab dinner with a sweet treat, like Cape Whoopies chocolate and vanilla Maine-iac Whoopie Pies.

Nutritional Benefits

Nutritional Benefits of Alaskan King Crab Meat

Crabmeat is a high-protein meat source that comes packed with vitamins and minerals. Like other shellfish and seafood we sell, crab could be added to the growing list of “superfoods” health experts recommend.

Crabmeat offers a whopping 16 grams of protein per 3 oz. serving. Crabmeat also contains vitamins B12 and C, and the antioxidants zinc and selenium. Zinc helps support bone mass and immune function, while selenium aids in preventing cellular damage. And there’s more. Crabmeat is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Cooking Crab

Preparing Alaskan King Crab Is Easy

We’re here to help perfectly cook your Alaskan king crab legs, even if this is your first time ordering them.

Colossal Alaskan King Crab Legs are already fully cooked by professional fishermen as soon as they are landed at the dock. Once thawed, you can eat the crab meat straight out of the leg.

Heating king crab legs is easy and fast. To boil:

  • Fill a large pot with water. Bring to boil.
  • Add thawed king crab legs. Turn heat down to medium.
  • Boil for 4 minutes. If boiling more than 15 legs, cook for 8 minutes.
  • Remove crab legs from pot. Run under cold water to stop them from cooking further. Plate and enjoy!
