Hy-Vee’s Alaska Crab Sale Tradition Continues

It’s time for Hy-Vee’s annual crab and seafood sale, a tradition we’ve had since 2012. It’s the absolute best time of the year to pick up some of Alaska’s most prized and sustainable resources. All Wild Alaska crab sold by Hy-Vee is labeled with our Responsible Choice logo because Alaska crab fisheries are some of the best-managed wild fisheries in the world.

No other shellfish in the world offers such widespread appeal than Alaska Crab. Harvested from the icy waters off Alaska, this shellfish is always sweet, succulent and flavorful. It is also nutritious, low in fat and is unmatched for its natural rich flavor and tender texture. Wild Alaska Crab lends itself to a variety of attractive plate presentations from appetizers, chowders and soups to main course entries.

The tradition in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest is to always serve Wild Caught Alaska Seafood during the Holidays to honor the fishermen and women that risk their lives bringing the bounty of the sea to our tables.

All of Hy-Vee’s Alaska King Crab & Bairdi Snow Crab is fully cooked and ready to eat; just heat and eat. Pre-score the legs with a butter knife before heating to make the cracking a lot easier. Melt butter, add little garlic powder and enjoy! If you have any questions on how to prepare it, just ask your local Hy-Vee seafood team.

Celebrate the holidays this year with Responsible Choice Wild Alaska King Crab & Bairdi Snow Crab. You and your guests will love it!
