Snow Crab

Snow Crab: Snow crab is somewhat similar in appearance, but smaller than the King crab. They have round shells and slim legs. As this particular species grows older, their shells start to change color and turn from a bright red to a muted yellow. The Snow crab’s shell can also grow up to fifteen centimeters in size, with males growing almost twice the size of the females. Snow crab meat even though not as highly valued as the King Crab, has a light and slightly sweet taste. The meat is very versatile in the kitchen, making it an wonderful addition to most seafood dishes and salads.

Process: Snow Crab is caught and frozen at sea. Once the catch is brought on deck, the processing cycle begins. The legs and claws are separated from the body, and then cooked on board. Once the cooking is completed, the Snow Crab is then frozen with a minimal amount of glaze to lock in the meats flavor. The crab is then wrapped in a food grade liner packed for export in random weight cluster 20lb boxes. These steps ensure that after purchase, our product is ready to be thawed and consumed at home.
