Fish Lads’ Fish of the Week: Alaskan King Crab Legs and Jumbo Shrimp [Sponsored]
This week’s catch is a double catch: Alaskan king crab legs and jumbo shrimps.
While there are about 120 species of king crab, with the most desirable from Alaska waters being the Alaskan red king crab.
Red king crabs have legs known to reach a span of six feet in length.
They are found in the cold waters of the Bering Strait, between western Alaska and Russia's Siberia region with the U.S.-Russian border traipsing it. Because of red king crabs' size and the frigid waters, their legs are known to have a sweet, robust, snow-white tasting meat.
This week's second catch, jumbo shrimp, comes from the Sea of Cortez (also known as the Gulf of California), which is situated between Mexico's Baja Peninsula and its mainland.
These jumbo shrimp are an excellent source of high-quality protein and low in fat. Shrimp are easily prepared by the following methods: boiled, broiled, baked, grilled or fried.
Fish Lads' Alaskan king crab and jumbo shrimp can be prepared for the perfect holiday appetizer.
