Order 12-14 oz. Alaskan Bairdi Leg Clusters

Alaskan Bairdi Leg Clusters arrive at your doorstep with legs attached to the shoulders of the crab, meaning you get even more sweet meat from these delectable crabs. “Cousins” to Alaskan red king crabs, snow crabs have pronounced differences. Snow crab legs aren’t as thick, but are generally longer, meaning there’s still plenty of meat in these crab leg clusters for a family dinner night or backyard cookout.

Bairdi Crab meat shreds more easily than that of the Alaskan king crab, which makes it an ideal choice if you want to add it to some of your favorite recipes, like crab mac & cheese, or mix it with mayo for a classic crab roll. This is also the reason why Bairdi Crab is more commonly referred to as "Snow Crab"; as the meat is delicate snow white once cooked. Of course, you can also just whip up some side dishes and serve your crabmeat with butter or tangy cocktail sauce for a traditional New England delight.

Responsibly Harvested Alaskan Bairdi Meat

The sustainability of seafood products is an issue deeply connected to Maine Lobster Now, fishing communities in Maine, and coastal communities all across the world. In order to offer you snow 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 snow 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. Caught off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea, Bairdi crab are immediately cooked and flash-frozen when brought into the docks. It’s impossible to experience fresher snow crab unless you take a boat out on the water and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend).

Some legs may break in transit and are not eligible for a refund.

Maine Lobster Now is proud to responsibly source our crab products from regions all over the world. Our snow crab is responsibly and ethically sourced off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea. Sourcing snow crabs from natural habitats allows them to be wild-caught in a manner that does not adversely affect their population or the surrounding ecosystem.

What’s a Serving Size for Bairdi Leg Clusters?

When you order Bairdi Crab Leg Clusters, please note the weight includes both the hard exoskeleton and the meat inside. On average, a snow crab yields about 50% meat to 50% shell. So each Bairdi crab leg cluster provides 6-7 oz. of meat, more than the recommended serving size of 5 oz.

Our Bairdi crab leg clusters give you more meat for the money. You get a full serving and still maybe have some for leftovers, which you can use to make your own crab cakes. You can also add classic seafood side dishes to your crab order. We offer all the necessary kitchen supplies, like lemon, butter, and cocktail sauce, and delicious sides like corn on the cob to pair with your crab legs. And really bring all the flavors of Maine home by adding Labadie's Bakery Original Maine Whoopie Pie for dessert.

Nutritional Benefits of Bairdi 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.

Preparing Snow Crab Is Easy

We’re here to help perfectly cook your snow crab leg clusters, even if this is your first time ordering them.
Bairdi Crab Leg Clusters 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 and body portion.
Heating Bairdi crab is easy and fast. To boil:

Fill a large pot with water. Bring to boil.
Add Bairdi crab leg clusters. Turn heat down to medium.

Boil for 4 minutes. If boiling more than 15 legs, cook for 8 minutes.

Remove crab from pot. Run under cold water to stop them from cooking further. Overheating or overcooking can ruin meat’s flavor and texture. Plate and enjoy!

You can also steam, grill, or bake snow crab leg clusters.
