DPI Freezing
Storing - Frozen snow crab can be kept in a freezer for several months due to it's protective water glaze.
Thawing - To thaw snow crab, place it in the refrigerator a day prior to cooking. The sealed packages can also be ran under cold water to speed this up considerably. Left-over snow crab should be kept under refrigeration and used within a couple of days.
DPI Packaging
Packaging - Our Opilio snow crab leg clusters average about 1/2 pound each. A 5 pound box would yield around 10 clusters. Our snow crab legs are pre-cooked, then flash-frozen in cluster form and packaged in clear plastic bags for easy freezer storage.
How Much to Order - 3 pounds of snow crab will serve 2 to 3 people easily if you're serving with additional entrees. If you're having a crab feast or are serving a group of crab lovers, 1 & 1/2 pounds per person would be a good start.
