Snow Crab Clusters
Handling and Preparation Instructions
Snow crab clusters are snow crab legs with a generous portion of the body attached. The delicately flavored snow-white meat can be served cold in salads, dips, stuffing, or spreads, or hot in soup, canapés, omelettes, soufflés, and pasta sauces. Snow crab clusters are easily and quickly prepared by steaming, boiling or baking. Available year round.
Snow crab legs come fully cooked. They're cooked at sea where they are caught and flash frozen aboard the fishing vessels to protect their flavors
Frozen cooked crab legs may be steamed or microwaved. Place them frozen over boiling water and steam them covered tightly for 6 minutes. Or place the frozen crab legs in the microwave covered with a damp towel and heat on defrost for 5 minutes. Brush with melted butter, season to taste and serve with cocktail sauce.
