Captain's LIMITED Reserve - Giant Red King Crab
Our Captain's Limited Reserve king crab legs are pre-cooked & flash-frozen. They are then glazed and packaged in clear plastic bags for easy freezer storage.
Our frozen, Captain's Limited Reserve can be stored in your freezer for several months. To thaw king crab legs & claws, place them in the refrigerator a day prior to cooking. Rinse quickly in a colander, under cold running water, to remove any lingering freezing brine. Left-over king crab should be kept under refrigeration and consumed within a couple of days.
2 pounds of king crab will serve 2 to 3 people easily when you're serving with additional entrees. If you're having a crab feast or are serving a group of crab lovers, 5 pounds would be good for 3 people. Usually around 1 1/2 per person is a good starting point.
King Crab is low in fat and calories, and is an excellent source of protein being much leaner than the same amount of beef. Additionally, King crab is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and contains no carbohydrates, saturated fats or trans fats. King crab legs are also nutrient-dense, making them a good source of vitamin C, folate, vitamin B12, as well as magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc and copper.
