you order the king crab as a whole.

its some package deal. basically the king crab price / lb + special price for cooked 3 ways.

its good stuff, we usually go to redstar to celebrate chinese new years..

Do you guys find that the crabs are getting smaller this year?

They used to be 12 lbs or more a couple years ago, but this year it looks like 9-10 lbs is quite the norm!

Makes me think about the sustainability ... I do want to keep enjoying King Crabs for a few more decades...

Was watching the F word the other night and Ramsey was diving for them in Norway ...i think. maybe finland? Anyway they have a epidemic of kingcrab iover there and they are seen as a nuisance. Hopefully they will somehow capitalize on that and start catching them out of that area. more crab=cheaper crab

Alaskan King Crab fishing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. I highly doubt they'll come down in price, if any, they would only go up.

no, all the ones I've been getting are 13-14lbs this year

just had another round of king crab at jade garden...
14lbs for 5 ppl
steam the legs with garlic/green onions
then the middle part stir fried with top layer soy sauce, first time had it done this way and surprisingly tasted much better then spicy deep fried, the meat was very flavored with the soy sauce
then the usual baked rice.

tip for eating king crab at restaurant, always go to the ones that prices are most expensive per lbs. those $12 and under per lbs places will never give out the right amount. they usually charge you 13lbs for a 8lbs crab

they are getting cheaper

in restaurant is good, but i like to cook it myself, and its very simple
buy the crab, cleaver it up
mix diced garlic with a bit of oil and salt and spread that on the crab meat and just steam it
its a nice flavor with the garlic and you get the natural sweet taste of the crab

I heard the same thing haha. They pretty much scavenge whatever is on the sea floor and consume everything in its path. The reason why the price doesn't move is because there's a limit on how many can be caught per year and since its one of their primary sources of income they won't increase the limit, apparently.

i'd usually have it few times a year when it's near the $10/lb range

i've never tried it deep-fried or w/ coconut sauce cause i usually eat it atw home. Which way do you guys like it best?

IMO king crab >> regular crab > lobster

just not a big lobster fan =p
