Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the best way to cook king crab?

Handle the crab sections carefully, as the shells have sharp points! Once thawed, they are best enjoyed within 24 hours. Your king crab is fully cooked and may be served hot or cold. Please remember that crab meat is very delicate and that dry heat cookingsuch as baking, broiling and grillingmay yield mixed results. We highly recommend the steaming method below, which you'll find quick, simple, and fool-proof.

Thaw crab in the refrigerator for a few hours. Place the split crab sections into a colander or veggie steamer, shell side down. Set colander into a pan above an inch or so of boiling water, cover, and steam for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, drawn garlic butter, or sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
