In this parsley populated part of Norway, people live from what nature provides them, and here in the depths of the ocean, lives the world's largest crab - the Red King Crab!
With a shell that can measure up to 28cm and when a king crab is fully grown, including its giant legs, it can reach up to 180cm! Thanks to its great strength it is able to live up to 20 years and reach a weight of 12kg
Alive, red king crab is actually a dark burgundy in colour. When they are cooked they turn bright red with scarlet-red highlights on the top part of the shell. The meat is snow-white, with highlights of bright red.
King crabs delicate flavour, its scarcity in calories and saturated fat, and lots of protein; with vitamin B12, C, magnesium and phosphorus, makes it a perfect choice for a balanced diet and a healthy spirit.
Cooking Tip: This delicious king crab is ready to cook after defrosting, each leg providing plentiful meat along with meat from the shoulder. The claws are pliable and can easily be cut with scissors.
Fill a large saucepan with cold water and bring to the boil. When boiling add a tablespoon of sea salt and reduce heat to medium. Using sharp scissors cut the King Crab legs into two at the main joint. Remove the shoulder joint. Place all the crab pieces into the saucepan, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Drain the crab in a colander and rinse with cold water. When cool use sharp scissors to cut along one side of the shell and carefully remove the crab meat, taking care to keep it as intact as possible. Remove the meat from the shoulder joint and discard the shells. The Whole King Crab Cluster can also be cooked under a hot grill, over a low flame BBQ or in a 180°c oven for around 25 mins. Fantastic served with drawn butter or tarragon mayonnaise, or peeled and added to the ultimate seafood cocktail. Single legs can be removed and defrosted easily and cooked separately if you do not need the whole cluster in one go.

For the shipping fresh and frozen goods we use high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network.
To keep frozen goods at the correct temperature we use a safe alternative to dry ice. These gel packs freeze to a temperature of -45° and stay frozen for an extended period of time. Completely food safe and fully recyclable/reusable.
The vast majority of shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this. In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in your freezer. Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.
All frozen products arrive in extremely high quality, fully insulated packaging.
All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper. This is suitable for storing in your fridge. If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac. Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
