DEFROSTING & SERVING CRAB

Premier Catch offers the highest quality crab from Alaska and the WA/OR Coasts! We have our Dungeness Crab Snap-n-Eats, which are great for a fun meal, making crab cakes, and crab dips! We also have our incredibly impressive Alaskan Red King crab legs, which are sure to impress a crowd.

But, after purchase, people often have questions:

"How do you defrost them?"
"Do you cook them?"
"How do you serve them?"

These are our most asked questions - and we are here to help!

Our Dungeness crab and King Crab is fully cooked! Once cooked, it goes through a brine freezing process with a fresh water glaze, which ensures excellent quality, freshness and texture.

After we hand you our beautiful crab, you just have to defrost it. Do not cook it!

Joci and I like to remove the crab from the bag/box, rinse it under cool water in the sink to remove the glaze and let it sit out on a cookie tray for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once it's defrosted, you may place it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. We prefer to eat it slightly cold or at room temperature. If you do happen to like it slightly warm you can steam it (the best method) by boiling about an inch of water in a pot and using a vegetable steamer for the Dungeness legs, or use a wide mouth pot or skillet to set the large King Crab legs across. The steam will rise and slightly warm the crab meat. Don't leave it too long, just a minute or two, to ensure you don't overcook the meat and change the wonderful texture.

Cheers!
