Cooking Guide: Snow Crab Leg Meat

Note: Each package we sell contains either 1b or 8oz of snow crab leg meat. A sizable serving size is 4oz.

Thawing Instructions:

  1. For optimal texture and flavor, we recommend a slow thawing process. Place the snow crab leg meat in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
  2. Once thawed, drain any liquid from the package.
  3. Keep the thawed crab meat under refrigeration (at 40°F) and consume within 2-3 days.

Cooking Methods:

Warm Serving (Recommended):

  1. In a pan, heat 2 tablespoon of unsalted butter over medium heat.
  2. Once the butter is melted, remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Add the 1lb of thawed snow crab leg meat, ensuring it's evenly spaced and submerged in the butter.
  4. Serve the crab directly from the pan or transfer to a serving dish.
  5. Accompany with cocktail sauce or unsalted drawn butter for dipping. We recommend adding chopped chives to your butter.
  6. Note: You can double the amount of butter to cook additional crab.

Cold Serving:

  1. Lightly pat thawed crab meat dry with paper towel after draining excess liquid from package.
  2. Arrange thawed crab meat on a cocktail platter.
  3. Optionally, place over ice to keep it chilled.
  4. Serve with cocktail sauce or unsalted drawn butter. We recommend adding chopped chives to your butter.

Enjoy your deliciously prepared snow crab leg meat!
