I know I’m not the lonely one waiting with bated breath for the fresh Alaska Red King Crab to arrive each year! And it’s game on right now. Fresh, never frozen, Alaska Red King Crab debuted in our Seafood case this Saturday and will be around while supplies last. Once fishing starts, we bring in as much as we can. It’s a very tight window that we carry it, so get it while you can. It’s such a good excuse to indulge in something so delicious and fresh!
TO PREPARE: Prior to flying in overnight to Ohio, these crab legs were first steamed on the Alaskan Dutch Harbor. To reheat at home, add a little water to your cookie sheet, and pre-heat your oven to 350°F and heat for 8-12 minutes or an internal temperature of approximately 140°F. Don’t forget the clarified butter!
PAIR WITH: DLM’s George Punter, CSW, says that when it comes to the sweet and succulent flavor of Fresh Alaska Red King Crab, that this is an occasion to pull out a buttery and rich Chardonnay from California. Try La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay or Butter Chardonnay.
