Description

Give Mom the royal treatment with king crab that's fit for a queen. The ultimate indulgence for seafoodies near and far, our wild Alaskan golden king crab legs are simply scrumptious when served with drawn butter and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Named for the color of their shells, golden king crab are sustainably* harvested from the deep, icy waters of the Bering Sea surrounding the remote Aleutian Islands of Alaska. This crab variety has a slightly sweeter flavor and lighter texture than that of its better-known cousin, red king crab. Each two-pound bag contains four to six crab legs and one claw, which have been cooked and flash-frozen to preserve their wild-caught quality. To prepare them at home, simply thaw, rinse, and serve chilled or warmed.

THAWING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Overnight: Remove crab from package, place in a colander, and cover loosely. Allow to thaw under refrigeration at or below 38°F (3°C) for 12 to 24 hours.
  • Quick-thawing: Place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate. If refrigerating, transfer to storage container and use within 2 days. Prior to cooking, pat dry with paper towels as needed.

    HEATING INSTRUCTIONS
  • Stove top: Bring a large pot of water to boil, turn off the heat, and place the crab (in its shell) into the hot water. Let the crab sit in the hot water for 4 to 8 minutes until fragrant and warmed through. Remove the crab from the water with tongs and drain in a colander.
  • Oven: Preheat oven to 350°F. Add crab legs and inch of water to a shallow baking pan. Cover with foil and bake for 3 to 8 minutes until just heated.
  • Grill: Heat grill to medium-high heat. Brush crab legs with olive oil and place on the grill. Cook for 2 to 5 minutes, flip, and heat for an additional 2 to 5 minutes until the crab meat is warm.
