Bristol Bay King Crab is a staff favorite at Coastal Seafoods. This crab is processed by the Royal Aleutian Company in Dutch Harbor, Alaska who use a much better method than their Russian competitors.
Most of the Alaskan king crab is caught and processed in the month of November. It is cooked in fresh water, glazed, frozen and prepared for market within hours.
Bristol Bay King Crab is sold as a cluster: all the left or right side legs remain attached to a meaty section of the body. The result is a clean, rich and delicate meat without the saltiness and breakage of the Russian product. These crab clusters yield up to 80 percent of meat which is a much better yield than a typical king crab found in grocery stores.
We are very proud to offer this outstanding and easy to prepare king crab year-round, as supplies last.
