Frozen Cooked Japanese King Crab Cluster
The cold, blue waters of the Bering Sea are home to some interesting creatures, but none are as popular or as highly sought-after as the Japanese Red King Crab. These titanic crabs can have a body of up to a foot in diameter, with legs that can span up to 5 feet. Their dark red to burgundy shells make a stark contrast with the crystal blue waters where they live and make them even more appealing to the senses.
Once they’re caught, these crabs are cooked and frozen to preserve the taste and texture of their prized meat. As they boil, the shells change from a deep, dark, rich red color, and turn into a bright scarlet hue, even bordering on orange. Their cooked meat – flawless white with flecks of crimson – is soft, buttery, and smooth, satisfying the discriminating taste of even the most critical food enthusiasts.
The Japanese Red King Crab has the meatiest legs on any crab – bar none. These humongous segments can measure several feet in length, making them the perfect centerpiece for a variety of recipes. Enjoy them with a selection of sauces, add them to a stew, or simply steam them and eat straight out of the shell – the opportunities are endless with these versatile legs that are sure to wow your guests.
