Feel like a fine din¬≠ing restau¬≠rant in your home by hav¬≠ing this in your next fan¬≠cy din¬≠ner spread. You won‚Äôt regret invit¬≠ing such roy¬≠al¬≠ty. Only avail¬≠able for Sat¬≠ur¬≠day deliv¬≠er¬≠ies. If you have a spe¬≠cial occa¬≠sion out¬≠side a Sat¬≠ur¬≠day, please get in touch with our Sup¬≠port to dis¬≠cuss arrangement. 

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

The tex¬≠ture of Live King Crab meat is more del¬≠i¬≠cate and soft¬≠er in appear¬≠ance com¬≠pared to oth¬≠er crab species. Alas¬≠ka King Crab also tends to have a unique ‚Äč‚Äúsweet‚ÄĚ taste that is unlike any oth¬≠er crab meat. Often its legs are pop¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠ly used in a vari¬≠ety of dish¬≠es due to its thick meat con¬≠tent but the insides of the crab body, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly crab fat or as Fil¬≠ipinos call it, aligue, is just as sin¬≠ful¬≠ly deli¬≠cious when cooked properly. 


A whole Live King Crab will give you all sorts of options for any occa¬≠sion. Its meat can be used in a vari¬≠ety of dish¬≠es, includ¬≠ing dips, soups, and crab cakes. You may also eat the meat fresh out of the shell whilst dip¬≠ping it into a melt¬≠ed but¬≠ter sauce or your pre¬≠ferred home¬≠made cock¬≠tail sauce. 

The Live King Crab‚Äôs insides of the crab body shell can have a num¬≠ber of uses. The white yel¬≠low fat inside the back of the shell is crab fat or aligue and it can be used to spruce up dish¬≠es such as fried rice or veg¬≠etable stews. The firm,orange-red crab roe or eggs can be used for soup. The yel¬≠low¬≠ish part is the crab‚Äôs hepatopan¬≠creas or toma¬≠l¬≠ley also known as crab mus¬≠tard. In Japan¬≠ese cui¬≠sine, crab toma¬≠l¬≠ley is used as kani miso and can make a dif¬≠fer¬≠ence in a num¬≠ber of seafood dishes. 

Match your cho¬≠sen crab dish with a love¬≠ly bot¬≠tle of your favorite white wine‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČChardon¬≠nay, Sauvi¬≠gnon Blanc or a Dry Ries¬≠ling. You will find that dri¬≠er whites make a per¬≠fect pair¬≠ing part¬≠ner for this roy¬≠al dish so avoid the sweet wines or wines that may have the ten¬≠den¬≠cy to over¬≠pow¬≠er the del¬≠i¬≠cate taste of crab meat.
