Why Red King Crab is the Best

Seafood lovers around the world know that crab is king. We don't just mean that as a clever play on words; crab truly is a versatile, delicious, and succulent meat that can be used in a wide variety of culinary applications. Read on for more information, ideas, and tips for your next Alaskan crab legs feast.

Hail to the crab king

You'll hear people argue in favor of their favorite type of crab, crab food, and crab recipes. While all those points will be valid, one of our favorites is undoubtedly the red king crab, simply steamed and dipped in butter. Classic, simple, and decadent king crab legs. These behemoth crustaceans are loaded with the most succulent, tender meat, you'd be hard-pressed to convince us there's anything better than this beautiful Alaskan crab.

The many ways to enjoy crab meat

Have you tried grilled king crab legs? Talk about heavenly. Place a giant cluster on the grill, heat for 5 – 6 minutes, turning once, then serve. Absolute delight, every single bite! Moist, delicious, and good for you, too. Add a favorite sauce, and you've just made your whole day ten times better.

If grilling isn't your style, or it's a little too chilly to get outside to do it, you can try steaming king crab legs for a delicious treat, too. You'll need a big pot with a strainer. Boil some water and place the crab legs into the strainer on top of the pot. It can take 6 – 14 minutes, so be patient. It's well worth the wait.

Preparing crab legs in a variety of ways and serving all at once can be fun, too, especially if you're preparing a huge seafood feast. Go ahead and show off your creativity! Be sure you have plenty though, because who can eat just one crab leg?

No matter how you prepare them, with a big plate of snow crab clusters or snow crab legs dripping with butter, your mouth will be watering.

Where to find your next crab feast

Finding king crab legs for sale can be an exhausting adventure, unless you know exactly where to look. If it happens to be king crab season when you get your deep and compelling craving, if you live near the Pacific Ocean you may be able to find this delicacy fresh and ready to bring home. But if it's not the right season or you're landlocked somewhere without open oceans, don't despair! You can buy frozen crab legs and still get an incredible meal! There's also the choice of canned crab meat, if you're feeling adventurous, but the applications available for canned crab are a little more limited. Crab cakes and rolls, sprinkled on salads, or used in soups, are the most common uses for canned crab meat.

If you can find fresh crab legs on sale locally, grab them! But that's just not possible all year round, and not at all possible in many places no matter the time of year. However, if you know where to look, you can scratch that itch for delicious blue king crab, Alaskan king crab legs, blue king crab, and many other types any time, anywhere. Global Seafoods offers crab legs for sale, and just so happens to have snow crab legs on sale right now, so it's a great time to jump on that craving. We're the place to go for the best Alaskan king crab—some might even say we're the crab king! But don't take our word for it. You can check out our reviews and see for yourself.
