King crab has a sweet, rich flavor and a particularly moist texture. King crabs are one of the most prized American crab varieties because of the quality & sweetness of their meat.
These king crab legs have already been cooked and can be enjoyed hot or cold. Their meat is delicious dipped in melted butter, tossed in salads, added to soups, pasta or other dishes.
Store king crab legs in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thaw.
For best quality, king crab should be used the day it is thawed (preferably as soon as possible).
RECIPES & TIPS
Once thawed, king crab legs can be served either hot or chilled. Chilled crab meat is delicious in salads and sandwiches.
Crab pairs well with a huge variety of flavors, including chile peppers, vinaigrettes, cilantro, lemon, shiso leaves, lobster mushrooms, butter, tarragon, mustard, avocados, grapefruit, yuzu, lemon, lime, mayonnaise or aioli, shrimp, bacon, onions, bell peppers and a huge variety of vegetables.
Because these crab legs are already cooked, if you’re serving them hot take care to only heat them through, cooking them further can damage their flavor and texture.
King crab legs can be boiled, steamed, broiled, or grilled in the shell. Read How to Cook Crab Legs for more info.
You can remove the meat from the legs before serving or simply bring them to the table with a crab cracker (and perhaps a bib). Cooked crab legs are delicious cracked & dipped in aioli, mayonnaise, drawn/clarified butter or a vinaigrette.
