STORING YOUR RED KING CRAB LOLLIPOPS: Once thawed, you can store your crab three days in the refrigerator. Pack the lollipops in ice and cover with a damp towel for best results (replenish the ice as it melts). You can store our fully cooked crab in the freezer for up to 6 months.
THAWING: To thaw, wrap the frozen Red King Crab Lollipops in paper towels and place in the refrigerator to thaw overnight.
PREPARING: You can simply thaw your crab and serve chilled. If you prefer to warm your crab, there are a variety of ways to reheat it. Steaming, boiling and baking (we recommend 275) are among the most common. Usually, under these methods, crab takes only 5 to 7 minutes to cook. Be careful not to overcook your crab, as it will reduce the texture and taste.
HOW TO SERVE YOUR RED KING CRAB: The traditional way to serve our fully cooked Red King Crab is with a simple accompaniment of drawn butter. Over the years, top chefs have derived their own creative touches to serving this special meal. Try a mix of garlic, lemon juice and olive oil… or experiment with your own creations!
CHOOSING THE RIGHT BEVERAGE: Dry white wines with a hint of sweetness make terrific partners for Red King Crab. Our personal recommendation is a Pinot Gris, though a dry Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc will work quite well, too. Malty ales, well chilled, are also delicious. For non-alcoholic alternatives, try either a fresh-made lemonade or fresh-brewed iced tea with lemon; again, serve well chilled.
CLEANING UP: Finely crush two saltine crackers in your hands, and then rub your hands together, just as if you were washing them with a bar of soap. The cracker crumbs will absorb any lingering crab odor, and leave your hands feeling fresh, soft and smooth!
