Incredibly delicious and easy to prepare, the King Crab is one of the most delicious bites I have ever eaten. It’s my opinion that it’s tastier than lobster. It has a sweet, subtle flavor. However, when dipped in the combination of butter, garlic, chives and lemon you will sense a taste that will make your body uncontrollably twitch with joy. Your mouth will open in amazement! Eventually, you will relax with glee before you crave to do it again.
Sipping a Reisling or Voignier is suggested but Sparkling wines such as Prosecco and Champagne will work as well to compliment the crab.
The crab (in most cases) is already cooked and flash frozen. All you have to do is thaw it out and warm it up. Check out the recipe for King Crab with Lemon Chive Garlic Butter.
