Fish Facts: Currently there are three major species of King Crab that are commercially caught; Red, Blue, and Gold King Crab. Red King Crab is the most sought after for its larger size and flavourful meat. King Crabs are recognized by their spikey exterior and elongated legs. Our King Crab is wild caught in Alaska using pots, sorting takes place while harvesting to ensure optimal quality and sustainability.
Taste/Cooking: The flavour of King Crab is often compared to that of Lobster. Rich, sweet, with a mild seafood flavour. The shell of the King Crab is substantially thicker and will require a cracking tool for safe handling. Common methods of preparation include; baking, boiling, broiling, and steaming. King Crab is a very versatile ingredient; however, a common pairing would be to serve with garlic/herb butter and lemon.
