Alaskan King Crab is coming to Ruben’s Grocery in October! This is the HUGE crab you see on the TV show The Deadliest Catch on the Discovery Channel. Only 5% of the world’s crab comes from the Bering Sea (where this crab is coming from in Alaska). Ruben and his dad have personally gone to Dutch Harbor to unload these beasts and inspect, first-hand, the process they demand for finding the biggest and best King Crabs in the world!
Only 5% of THAT 5% makes it to market, WHOLE. The crabs Ruben’s is offering are these extremely rare, WHOLE, Red Alaskan King Crabs in perfect form. 5% of 5% is a tiny fraction when you realize you are one of 7 billion people on this planet who has the chance to enjoy one of these 340 whole crabs available this season. Yes, 340 for the entire world make it out of those ships in perfect form and then are steamed with fresh water.
What Ruben’s is offering you here is crab that is completely filled and bursting with flavor. You see, Alaskan Red King Crab can only be harvested during a very short two week season in October, right before the King Crabs molt (that means lose their old shells because they no longer fit in them). Only the largest and most perfect crabs are flown out around the world, fresh, for those two weeks. All the rest of the crabs are cut and frozen, sold year round. Yuck! All the King Crab you have ever eaten, anywhere outside of Alaska, has been FROZEN! Fresh King Crab is indescribably succulent, sweet and delicious beyond belief.
