A Note On Our King Crab:

All of our king crab comes pre-cooked. Here’s the simple reason: Our method preserves the natural freshness of each catch — so fresh you’ll feel like you’re on a dock in Alaska enjoying the best of a just-off-the-boat king crab dinner.


So, just remember to eat within 3-5 days after thawing and heating. 


Check out this blog for more info on the process behind pre-cooking our king crab.



How to Thaw:

Please, do not thaw your catch at room temperature. The safest, most effective method is to thaw in the fridge overnight. But, if you forget to refrigerate the night before the big party running it under cold water will speed up the thawing process.
