Dungeness Crab meat has a slightly sweet, slightly nutty flavor with heavy overtones of ocean flavor packed in every bite. While some prefer Dungeness Crab over other species, it is often held in lower regard than both Snow Crab and King Crab.
Cooking Tips & Recipes
For best results, cook from frozen. Do not refreeze. Product is already cooked, so simply reheat and enjoy.
Place legs in a shallow baking dish with 1/8 inch water. Cover with foil and bake at 400°F for 6-8 minutes. Enjoy immediately.
Lightly oil all sides of each leg, then grill at 300°F for 5 minutes on each side.
Boil: (our least favorite method)
Fill a large pot halfway with water and a Tablespoon of salt before bringing to a boil. Add crab legs and reduce heat to medium. Let simmer for 6 minutes. This is our least favorite method because the hot water leeches the flavor out of the crab.
