How do I prepare The Dungeness Crab Gift?

Please place crab in refrigerator until ready to serve. We recommend eating your crab within 1-2 days of arrival for optimal quality.


  • Your crab is cooked, cleaned and ready for you to crack & eat!
  • Crab is traditionally served chilled. You can enjoy it heated by steaming for 3-5

How to crack a crab leg

  • Separate each leg from the cluster with a gentle twist and tug.
  • Twist crab leg at joint and pull out cartilage.
  • Crack leg about half-way down with your hands and pull the shell off to slide the meat out. (You can also cut the leg open lengthwise with kitchen shears)
  • Pull apart the shell and remove the meat.
  • For the claw, use a nut cracker to loosen the shell and pull the meat out with a fork.

Serving suggestions

  • Serve with melted butter and fresh lemons. You can use the included Roasted Garlic Herb butter for both your crab & sourdough!
