Most folks agree that King Crabs are the sweetest of the Crab family. It’s no wonder! Its legs are abundant with tender and chunky white meat that’s full-flavored and succulent. If you like Lobster and Prawns, you’ll love them. These Split King Crab Legs are cooked and frozen for your convenience. You get all their delicious meat without all the hard work!
King Crabs have five pairs of legs. The first bears their claws or pincers. The following three pairs are for walking, and the fifth pair is small and normally tucked underneath the rear portion of the shell covering their back.
Thaw overnight in the fridge. We like to add water, lemon and Old Bay seasoning to a steamer full of water, and then place these legs and claws on the rack and steam until warm and juicy. We also brush them with olive oil and quickly grill until warmed through. Melted butter on the side, of course!
Eating King Crab has its nutritional benefits. They’re an excellent source of protein, Vitamin B12, Zinc, Copper and Selenium...plus a good source of Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Niacin, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus.
