I love seafood so my question is:

Can I have the ENTIRE Alaskan King Crab instead of just the legs like they give us here in the lower 48?

I don't think you want to be eating what's inside the shell. Stick with the legs and claws. Unless you like gills and guts.

Well, it's been my experience that, here in the south, they serve/sell snow crab and label it as King Crab. For the most part, I believe this to be an ignorance induced error, not malicious or intentional fraud. It is not a Blue Crab (a really big one is still smaller than a catchers mitt) so......if it ain't a blue crab, and is obviously bigger than a blue crab, then...it MUST be a King Crab! A lot of southerners are under the mistaken impression they have eaten King Crab and, in truth, they have not.

I have had snow crab legs here in Florida but when I lived in New England I had some that they called Alaskan King Crab and they were MUCH bigger then the snow crab legs but of course I am not an authority.

yes, Lindsey_Mcfarren, I've had both King and Snow as well and the Kings are much bigger, so you could tell the difference IF they were sold to you still in the shells and not already removed and processed into something.

Ok, now all the this talk of King Crab has me homesick for Alaskan seafood!! I miss fresh salmon and halibut so very, very much!
