How to Remove the Crab Meat from the Snow Crab Cluster

  1. Start by removing each individual leg from the cluster by snapping it off at the cluster.
  2. Break each leg into two parts by snapping at the joint.
  3. For each leg use two hands on each end to gently bend back and forth until the shell breaks. The meat should slide out easily from the shell.
  4. For claws, use a cracker or your teeth to break open the shell. Do not apply too much pressure or you’ll crush the meat inside. Peel back the shell until you can easily slide the meat out.
  5. For the cluster, crack it gently with your hands and fold it open. The meat is found on the inside. Use a small fork to remove all the pockets of meat.
