Order 12-14 oz. or 14-16 oz. Bairdi Crab Leg Clusters
Bairdi Crab Leg Clusters arrive at your doorstep with legs attached to the shoulders of the crab, meaning you get even more sweet meat from these delectable crabs. “Cousins” to Alaskan red king crabs, snow crabs have pronounced differences. Bairdi crab legs aren’t as thick but are generally longer, meaning there’s still plenty of meat in these crab leg clusters for a family dinner night or backyard cookout.
Bairdi crab meat shreds more easily than that of the Alaskan king crab, which makes it an ideal choice if you want to add it to some of your favorite recipes, like crab mac and cheese, or mix it with mayo for a classic crab roll. Also, the more common market name, "Snow Crab," was given to this species because when cooked, the meat is a beautiful snow-white color.
Responsibly Harvested Bairdi Crab Meat
The sustainability of seafood products is an issue deeply connected to King Crab Legs Co., fishing communities in Maine and coastal communities all across the world. In order to offer you snow crab meat today, and in the future, we work only with fisheries that follow all local, federal and international rules and regulations to responsibly harvest snow crab to ensure continued access to these crustaceans for future generations.
Unmatched Quality and FreshnessKing Crab Legs Co. sources crab meat to be the freshest and tastiest it can be for our customers. Caught off the coast of Alaska in the Bering Sea, Bairdi crabs are immediately cooked and flash-frozen when brought into the docks. It’s impossible to experience fresher snow crab unless you take a boat out on the water and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend). This also means Baridi Crab is the only domestic Snow Crab you can currently buy.
Some legs may break in transit and are not eligible for a refund.
King Crab Legs Co is proud to responsibly source our crab products from regions all over the world. Our snow crab is responsibly and ethically sourced from Canada in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, as well as the Bering Sea off of the Alaskan coast. Sourcing snow crabs from natural habitats allows them to be wild-caught in a manner that does not adversely affect their population or the surrounding ecosystem.
When you order Snow Crab Leg Clusters, please note the weight includes both the hard exoskeleton and the meat inside. On average, a snow crab yields about 50% meat to 50% shell. So each snow crab leg cluster provides 6-7 oz. of meat, more than the recommended serving size of 5 oz.
Nutritional Benefits of Snow Crab Meat
Crabmeat is a high-protein meat source that comes packed with vitamins and minerals. Like other shellfish and seafood we sell, crab could be added to the growing list of “superfoods” health experts recommend.
Crabmeat offers a whopping 16 grams of protein per 3 oz. serving. Crabmeat also contains vitamins B12 and C, and the antioxidants zinc and selenium. Zinc helps support bone mass and immune function, while selenium aids in preventing cellular damage. And there’s more. Crabmeat is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.
