The meat of the King Crab is distinguished by its very fine structure and unique taste. The Russian King Crab (Paralithodes camtschaticus) is the absolute highest level in the premium crab sector. Its deliciousness is unsurpassed.
These King Crab Clusters are already cooked and then quick frozen. Before serving or cooking, thaw thoroughly.
The red king crab is native to the Bering Sea, North Pacific Ocean, around the Kamchatka Peninsula and neighboring Alaskan waters. It was introduced artificially by the Soviet Union into the Murmansk Fjord, Barents Sea, during the 1960s to provide a new, and valuable, catch in Europe.
Today, Russian King Crabs, although with no official designation, can only be called “Russian” if caught in the country. Everything else can only be called Red King Crab or alternatively, Alaskan King Crab, if sourced in Alaskan waters.
Your Russian King Crab Clusters arrive to you frozen. Thaw only when about to be cooked. It is not advised to thaw and refreeze. Consume within 4 days after cooking.
