Treat you, your family, or your dinner guests to a Maine seafood feast without ever leaving home. Our Snow Crab Leg Pieces offer an affordable and delicious way to turn a regular meal into a fine dining experience. Snow crab legs are longer and more narrow compared to our red king crab legs, but offer sweet, tender meat that’s just as good on its own, or dipped in melted butter or tangy cocktail sauce. One bite and you’ll be transported to a charming fishing village overlooking tranquil ocean vistas.
Snow 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.
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 Leg Pieces?
When ordering Snow Crab Legs, you should know 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 order of snow crab leg pieces provides about 8 oz. of meat and is an ideal for serving 2 people for their main entrée.
To get the full New England tasting experience, order classic seafood side dishes with your crab order. We offer all the necessary kitchen supplies, like lemon, butter, and cocktail sauce, and you can also order delicious corn on the cob or red potatoes. For dessert, add Maine-iac’s Chocolate Whoopie Pies.
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.

Maine Lobster Now offers the best price on shipping crabmeat, lobster, and more seafood products. When you spend $100 or more, your order ships FREE.
You can also schedule your seafood delivery ahead of time. At checkout, choose the day you want your food delivered to ensure you have the freshest possible seafood at your door on the day you need it.
In order to bring you a truly memorable seafood experience and keep our products as fresh as possible, all frozen items are shipped with gel packs or dry ice. Dry ice is not hazardous to food and will not contaminate it. In fact, these cooling methods, alongside our own nitrogen freezing process, help keep your seafood at ideal temperatures during shipping and ensure they taste just like they are fresh from the dock.
Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Snow Crab
We’ll help you maintain your snow crab at the highest quality possible.
- Keep frozen at or below 0℉.
- Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38℉.
- For quick thawing, place frozen package in cool water for 20 to 30 minutes until contents are flexible.
- Once thawed, immediately use or refrigerate.
- Do not allow food to warm above 38℉ prior to cooking.
Preparing Snow Crab Is Easy
We’re here to help perfectly cook your snow crab legs, even if this is your first time ordering them.
Snow Crab Leg Pieces 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 snow crab is easy and fast. To boil:
- Fill a large pot with water. Bring to boil.
- Add snow crab leg pieces. 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 legs.
