How to Eat Crab

Crack open the
Alaskan Snow Crab

There are many varieties of crab out there, but none are as majestic —
or delicious — as the Alaskan Snow Crab.

Female snow crab typically live 6 to 8 years, though males can live up to 20 years.

The snow crab is also called the queen crab because they’re long- legged like king crab but smaller in size.

How to eat crab:

1 - Have your tools ready.
We suggest using a seafood cracker and a small fork.

2 - Break (off) a leg.
Pull one of the legs off the cluster; break the leg at each joint.

3 - Get cracking. Use the cracking tool to expose the meat inside the leg.

4 - Fork it over. Pick out the meat from the shells using your small fork or even your fingers.

5 - Bon appétit! Squeeze lemon and dip each piece into butter.

Made of copper and sometimes silver, its modern name is the eight-piece set, and is still used today.

Crabbers catch 200 or more crab at a time in a pot.
