Our Snow Crab Cocktail Claws are the perfect starter for special events like a cocktail happy hour, or an appetizer for a routine family dinner night. These easy-to-open claws offer an effortless and delicious foray into our fresh seafood and will make your perfect cocktail hour. No matter who is invited, they’re sure to enjoy the sweet flavor of snow crab meat with their meal.
If you don’t want to eat them cocktail style, snow crab meat makes an ideal choice to extract from the shell and add to your favorite recipes or mix it with mayo for a classic crab roll. 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 Snow Crab 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 north of Nova Scotia in Canada and off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea, snow crabs 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).
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 from Canada in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, as well as the Bering Sea off of the Alaskan coast. 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 of Snow Crab Cocktail Claws?
Each 1 lb. bag of Snow Crab Claws comes with approximately 16-20 claws that are perfect as appetizers or nibbling at a cocktail hour. These claws are cut “cap-off,” meaning you simply pull the meat out of the end of the shell to enjoy once thawed. We offer all the necessary kitchen supplies, like lemon, butter, and cocktail sauce, to bring home the classic flavors of Maine to enjoy with your snow crab claws.
Nutritional Benefits of Snow 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
Snow Crab Claws 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 shell.
If you wish to heat them, it is recommended to only heat the product until warmed through to your desired temperature. Overcooking snow crab meat may result in less flavorful meat and an undesired texture.
