Just in from Harvesting Crab in Alaska
Co-Captain Anna is just returning from a busy season harvesting Golden King crab in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. Back in her home kitchen, she took a moment to share one of her favorite recipes for King crabs legs: King Crab Pasta Carbonara. Slightly sweeter and lighter than its Red King cousin, Golden King crab is the perfect choice for this dish. The video of the recipe is here at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sft5KWwpLlQ
