If you think you can only get delicious snow crab during “the season,” think again. Because it’s pre-cooked and flash frozen almost immediately after catch. Crab retains its delectable taste and firm texture that can be enjoyed any time of the year. The shell has been cracked and partially removed to make them easy to serve and eat. Just thaw and serve chilled- warm, melted butter optional. Once the snow crab is thawed, be sure to store it in the refrigerator and use the crabmeat within two days.
Packaging – Our snow crab cocktail claws are flash-frozen, glazed, then packaged in 1 lb clear plastic bags for easy freezer storage.
How Much to Order – For a full meal, we recommend one pound per person. As an appetizer, 3-5 claws per person is generally adequate. However, bear in mind that at a party – your cocktail claws will likely receive more attention than other appetizers being served!
Snow crab is low in fat and calories, yet high in protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. It is also a good source of Folate and Magnesium, and a very good source of Vitamin B12, Phosphorus, Zinc, Copper and Selenium. On the other hand, snow crab is very high in cholesterol and sodium.
