Kings are the ultimate crabs, sizewise and tastewise. Their big, meaty legs contain remarkably tender, sweet, delicately flavored meat. They also have the highest meat-to-shell ratio of any crab. Use the distinctive red-edged snowy-white meat in any crab recipe, or simply steam the legs until heated through and serve with drawn butter.
FreshDirect sources its crab legs directly from Copper River Seafoods, a community of Alaskan fishermen. Since 1996, Copper River Seafoods has provided the highest quality seafood on the market while protecting Alaska's resources and supporting local fishermen.
