Cooked snow crab cluster

The Chionoecetes opilio crab is a crustacean commonly known as the snow crab.

Smaller than the king crab, the snow crab looks like a large spider. Its shell is orange-brown on the back and cream on the belly. In addition to its pair of strong claws, it has four pairs of long oval legs.
It is caught all year round in zone F.A.O. 21 (North-West Atlantic), using traps and pots.

The absence of any chemical treatment allows its taste qualities to be fully expressed.
We sell it cooked cluster.
Enjoy it in buffets or in cocktails.
