What to Expect from Dungeness Crab Clusters
While our West Coast fans are likely familiar with Dungeness, it might be a new food for those who live in other parts of the country. Dungeness are found in the chilly waters of the Pacific Ocean, mainly in northern California, Oregon, and Washington. These crabs have a mild, nutty, and sweet taste. The body meat is very tender, and the leg meat is slightly firmer. If you’re buying Dungeness crab clusters, you’ll receive several legs with a few bites of body meat to try.
Dungeness crab is a very versatile food. From crab cakes to casseroles, Dungeness fits into a variety of dishes and cuisines. We prefer ours prepared simply with a quick steam and a side of melted butter. But, if you want to get creative, consider oven-roasting, broiling, or even grilling your clusters. The meat is delicious both on its own, or cooked into a dish. When you try Dungeness crab legs from Lummi Island Wild, you’re buying an easy, simple, and delicious meal.
We take care to have fair and accessible Dungeness crab prices. We sit squarely in the middle of most price ranges. That cost goes toward our sustainable seafood operation, the pre-cooking and flash freezing we perform to preserve the meat, and the high meat yield you get from a Dungeness crab.
Our Dungeness Crab is Thoughtfully Prepared
Dungeness crab clusters are sweet, buttery, and easy to eat. Our Snap and Eat crab legs take some of the labor out of enjoying your meal. The shell of each leg is scored in several places. This makes accessing the meat a breeze – most won’t even need to use a crab cracker. We find that this extra detail is helpful for both beginner and experienced crab eaters.
As with most of our seafood, our Dungeness crab ships frozen. But, because these crabs are pre-cooked, you won’t have to do much when they arrive. Simply transfer them to the freezer to store, or leave them in the refrigerator to thaw. Once the meat becomes light and supple, they’ll be ready to eat. Dungeness crab can be stored in the freezer for up to four months.
