In the depths of one of the world's richest and cleanest oceans, the Barents Sea, lives the red king crab, the largest species of king crab in the world. 

Just off the coast of Finnmark in Norway, small coastal fishing boats head out each day with no more than 30 crab pots on board.  Only the biggest and finest crabs are brought to shore and the others carefully returned to the sea.  These rulers of the sea are in abundance and are highly sustainable.

Alive, red king crab is actually a dark burgundy in colour. When they are cooked they turn bright red with scarlet-red highlights on the top part of the shell. The meat is snow-white, with highlights of bright red.

Red King crab is nutrient-rich and has a wonderful sweet flavour with a tender texture.  Simply delicious served hot or cold with homemade aioli or tarragon mayonnaise and a squeeze of lemon.

This delicious king crab is ready to cook after defrosting, each leg providing plentiful meat along with meat from the shoulder.  Once cooked, the claws are pliable and can easily be cut with scissors, the shoulder meat, however, requires a little more patience but is well worth the effort.  Single legs can be removed and defrosted easily and cooked separately if you do not need the whole cluster in one go.
