DPI Freezing
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).
DPI Packaging
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.
DPI Health
King Crab is low in fat and calories, and is an excellent source of protein being much leaner than the same amount of beef. Additionally, King crab is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and contains no carbohydrates, saturated fats or trans fats. King crab legs are also nutrient-dense, making them a good source of vitamin C, folate, vitamin B12, as well as magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc and copper.

Customer Reviews

Very satisfied! Review by Nancy
 
My daughter received this order on the day promised and was very satisfied. She said the crab legs were well presented and she felt like she had received an exceptional gift. The instructions for preparing were helpful and appreciated. When steamed they were the best she and her family had ever tasted. Some adjectives used to describe them were large, fresh, tender, meaty, sweet, tasty, exceptional. She received five pounds and said it was enough for two meals for her family of two adults and one teenager. Never having ordered from you before I was so happy to hear that your product was everything I hoped it would be. Now my husband and I are thinking we should place an order for ourselves. Thank you for helping us pick out such an appreciated gift for them. (Posted on August 30, 2014)

Beyond words! Review by Mike Brown
 
I can't say enough about the quality of the crab,and service. I ordered some of the fresh king crab in November and all eight pounds were gone in about two days.The taste of the fresh crab is beyond words. Although the shipment was a week late I was notified several times by email. Customer service seems to have be a thing of the past, but not at FishEx. I have ordered since then with the same end result. Excellent product and service. Can't wait for some of the SPOT SHRIMP! (Posted on August 30, 2014)

Totally amazing! Review by Matt and Celia
 
We've enjoyed king crab in Alaska, so we recently ordered your fresh crab for home delivery. It was totally amazing. We're from Louisiana, so we know what is good, fresh seafood. You've got it for sure! We are ordering more today. Thanks for the great products and fantastic service. (Posted on August 30, 2014)

Amazing! Review by Joseph
 
Amazing! I have eaten fresh (never frozen) crab at a restaurant and have looked for a place to purchase it all over the internet. Finally! I order the Bristol Bay Red King and it was absolutely perfect. I have told others about never frozen crab and about the differences, and your crab lived up to my hype! Thank you again I will be ordering more today! (Posted on August 30, 2014)
