Holiday Feasting: A Shopping Guide Made Simple
As the time for holiday feasting draws near you may be preparing your menu. A well-laden table with everyone’s favorites has become the traditional way to celebrate every holiday and when planning your holiday spread, it can be difficult at times to figure out how much food you need to buy and prepare. To help in the seafood space, we’ve made a handy ordering guide so you can order with confidence.
Alaskan King Crab Legs
First, may we say, what lucky guests to be included on your list! Each adult will typically eat two pounds of king crab legs. Guests with larger appetites may consume three pounds each. Also take the size range into account when calculating the king crab serving size - colossal king crab legs range from ¾ to 1 pound per leg, while super colossal king crab legs range from 1 to 2 pounds per leg.
- 4 Guests = 8 Pounds
- 6 Guests = 12 Pounds
- 8 Guests = 16 Pounds
And what’s a seafood spread without butter, bibs and shears? Our Mr. Sticks Original Just Add Butter Seafood Seasonings will up the dipping ante ten fold, shears will make everyone's life easier and bibs will keep everything tidy, but they also make for a great photo opp!
Snow Crab Cocktail Claws
Our Snow Crab Cocktail Claws make a superb hors d'oeuvre option for holiday gatherings. They come pre-cracked and can be served chilled over ice, or warmed using your preferred method. One pound will include between 16-20 Snow Crab Cocktail Claws and depending on the other appetizer and/or hors d’oeuvre options, each adult could eat between 8-10 claws. They’re the perfect bite size finger food option!
- 6 Guests = 3 Pounds
- 8 Guests = 4 Pounds
- 10 Guests = 5 Pounds
- 12 Guests = 6 Pounds
Oishii White Shrimp
Sold in two-pound bags, our shrimp is juicy and amazing. We recommend ½ to 1 pound of shrimp per person, closer to 1 ¼ pound for guests with larger appetites. That’s if the shrimp is the main dish—if you’re using shrimp in a side dish, order as your recipe dictates.
Try our Woos! Ultimate Hot Sauce for dipping your shrimp. It’s great for adding that tangy spice and makes a great addition to cocktail sauce. Enjoy!

Jonah Crab Cocktail Claws
Looking for the perfect appetizer for your holiday feast? These crab claws dipped in drawn butter or a seafood dip are just the thing. They’re pre-cooked, so they just need to be warmed before serving. What could be easier? One 2-pound bag can provide appetizer-size portions for 24-32 people, depending on their appetites.
Try spicing up your dip recipe with Woos! Ultimate Hot Sauce for an added kick. And your drawn butter will be extra scrumptious if you add in a couple of teaspoons (per butter stick) of Mr. Stick’s Just Add Butter Seafood Seasoning. It’s flavored with lemon and garlic and adds an unexpected kick.

Not many main dishes will please your guests as well as lobster. They’ll walk away from your table satiated and happy. Guidelines state each adult should consume around 10 ounces of lobster meat. Our tails are large, weighing between 12-14 ounces, so order one per person. However, if you’d like to go the not-so-traditional way of eating lobster - check out this recipe for a classic lobster roll that will steal the show.
