King crab vs snow crab?
Clearly there is a huge difference in King vs. Snow crab legs---however, am I the only one who has had very good Snow Crab? They tend to be sweet and very good. King Crab can be saltier, and not in a good way. Thoughts on the little guys?
Side by side if there was king crab or snow crab, I'd opt for king crab. But snow crab can be good.
Maybe you're too young to remember but years ago snow crab wasn't even served in restaurants or fished for, they threw them back there was no demand for it. The poster above reminds me of episodes of "The Deadliest Catch" where the price of king crab the boat sells to the processor commands around $5/pound whereas the snow crab is about $2/pound.
I've found just the opposite. King Crab is sweeter, snow crab saltier. And snow crab just doesn't provide enough meat - too much work, too little reward. I'll go for King Crab any day, regardless of price.
