FRESH Alaska Red King Crab
Our fresh Alaska red king crab is pre-cooked & and kept chilled until shipped overnight. It is wrapped in bubble wrap prior to shipping and kept chilled within a styrofoam box during transport.
Fresh king crab should be refrigerated immediately and served within 2 days of arrival. Left-over king crab (which is rare) should be used within a couple days of your meal. A tip for extending the shelf life a bit is to place a bag of ice on top of the crab (be sure the storage pan is deep enough to hold the ice melt, and that the crab is not left to "drown" in a pool of water).
Generally, 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 lb 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.
