Whole King Crab Cluster - Cooked
Giant Red King Crab Leg Cluster - Cooked
Red king crabs can weigh 4 to 5 kilograms on average and measure up to 1.80m in wingspan.
The red king crab has a regal look to it. Its pointy shell looks like a pointy crown draped in a lavish crimson gown. One of its claws are bigger than the other, which could be mistaken for a sceptre, but is actually used to crush the red king’s prey.
King crabs are large, with succulent and tasty flesh, that can be enjoyed in both hot and cold dishes. King crab is low in saturated fat and a good source of vitamin B12, phosphorus, zinc, copper, and selenium. It has fleshy claws and legs packed with sweet, rich meat.
Usage: This delicious king crab is ready to eat after defrosting, each leg providing plentiful meat along with meat from the shoulder. The claws are pliable and can easily be cut with scissors, the shoulder meat, however, requires a little more patience but is well worth the effort.
The claws can be reheated under a grill or in the oven and are fantastic served with drawn butter or tarragon mayonnaise.
Net: Combined Weight of 3 x Legs, 1 x Claw
