Bairdi Snow Crab Legs & Claws Single Cut (1/10 lb) 414545

The Bairdi Crab, harvested only in Alaska, is distinguished by a bright, spiky red shell and is larger in size than its Opilio cousin. Both species are cooked live and immediately brine frozen to preserve freshness, make them easy to release from the shell. This brine freezing process, unique to the Alaskan harvest, delivers a delicate crab flavor.

Serving Suggestion

Snow Crab is sensational served chilled as a cocktail. Steaming, sauteing or broiling will also bring out its delicate flavor. Serve Snow Crab with butter, sweet & sour sauces or herbed vinegars.
