How do I cook a live King Crab?
Cooking a live King Crab is fairly straightforward. You can boil, steam, or bake it. Here’s a simple method: Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt and any desired seasonings, then carefully lower the live crab into the water. Boil for about 10-12 minutes per pound. Once cooked, let it cool slightly before cracking and enjoying the delicious meat inside.
Freshness can be determined by several factors. Look for lively movement in the crab’s legs and claws, a strong ocean smell, and vibrant coloration. Fresh crab should also feel heavy for its size and have firm, unbroken shells.
An 8 lb live King Crab typically yields around 4-6 servings, depending on portion sizes and appetites.
Yes, you can freeze cooked King Crab for later consumption. Ensure it’s properly wrapped to prevent freezer burn, and use within a few months for the best quality.
While specialized crab crackers can make the task easier, you can also use kitchen shears, nutcrackers, or even a hammer wrapped in a towel to crack open the shells.
It’s best to cook the live King Crab as soon as possible after receiving it. However, if kept refrigerated, it can remain alive for a day or two before cooking without sacrificing quality.
Some connoisseurs argue that cooking a crab live preserves its natural flavors better, resulting in a slightly sweeter and fresher taste compared to pre-cooked crab. However, both options can be delicious when prepared properly.
Yes, we ship live King Crab directly from our tanks on the West Coast to ensure maximum freshness. However, please note that while we take great care to keep the crabs alive in transit, we cannot guarantee live delivery.

The steamers were big Father’s Day hit today!!!

I love there lobster,clams , Haddock and last deep sea scallops. There service and working together is perfect. They helped me find an order that the mail man hid on me. They have helped me get just what I want and I love that the products come in just as they promise with next day ordering. Fresh clean and packed just right even for the South Carolina heat index . No spoilage. This last order I asked not to have it frozen so I could repack it. It still came in fresh and was able to repack in the size I can eat! Thank you for your great service for going beyond what you needed to do! I appreciate your kindness. Sorry ate the lobster meat it was so delicious. Taste just like it came fresh out of the sea
