Storing - Fresh king crab should be refrigerated immediately and served within 2 days of arrival. Left-over king crab (which is rare) should be used within a couple days of your meal.
A tip for extending the shelf life a bit is to place a bag of ice on top of the crab (be sure the storage pan is deep enough to hold the ice melt, and that the crab is not left to "drown" in a pool of water).
Packaging - Our fresh Alaska red king crab is pre-cooked & and kept chilled until shipped overnight. It is wrapped in bubble wrap prior to shipping and kept chilled within a styrofoam box during transport.
How Much to Order - 2 pounds of king crab will serve 2 to 3 people easily when serving with additional entrees. If you're having a crab feast or are serving a group of crab lovers, 5 pounds would be good for 3 people.
