Product Information

Pricing note: Unfortunately we have had a steep price rise on all of our king crab since September 2021 due to sky-high king crab prices. 

  • Each pack contains 2 cooked king crab prime sections
  • These are cooked, ready to eat - Can be served warm or cold
  • One pack would serve 2 people or 1 hungry crab lover

The most sumptuous way to enjoy this superb king crab. These are the upper sections - the thighs - of its long legs. They’re typically 12-16cm long, and they contain the wonderful sweet white meat for which this giant red crab is famous for. All things top of the range - best not to over complicate them. They are already cooked so they can be halved and served cold. We recommend warming slightly, serving with a little bit of garlic butter for dunking. A pack comprises two drainpipe-shaped sections. To serve, cut them lengthways with a pair of kitchen scissors to get two ’gutters’ per section. A pack weight of 250g+ could be stretched across 4 servings, but it’s probably best to stick to a minimum of one section per serving. The weight includes the shell, but the ratio is about 70% meat to 30% shell.

Norwegian fished King Crab is rated a best choice when it comes to sustainable sourcing. This invasive non-native species is in abundance in the Barents sea. The catch method if ecologically friendly, with a low risk of bycatch or harm to other species. Our supplier is also MSC certified.
