Red King Crab
( 帝王蟹; 킹크랩 )
The red king crab has a regal look. Its pointy shell looks like a pointy crown draped in a lavish crimson gown. One of its claws are bigger than the other, which could be mistaken for a scepter, but is actually used to crush the red king’s prey. The crab is large, with succulent and tasty flesh, that can be enjoyed in both hot and cold dishes.
All year round. The catch range for red king crab is a quota regulated along the east coast of Finnmark, down towards Nordkapp.
