Ocean Prime Brings Back The First Catch Of Dutch Harbor Red King Crab This Fall

Restaurants to Receive First Catch of the Season Straight from Alaska’s Dutch Harbor

October 13, 2016

WHAT: On Thursday, October 13, Ocean Prime Boston will receive and serve exclusive, first shipments of the highly-anticipated Dutch Harbor Red King Crab season. Dutch Harbor Red King Crab is the most prized species of crab in the world and only available for a limited time. These decadent crustaceans have a sweet, juicy flavor and succulent texture, and can weigh anywhere from five to 15 pounds.

Every year, the first boat of the season is boarded with officials from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game who measure, inspect and gather important data about the crabs before they ship to restaurants. Last year, two of OCEAN PRIME's regional chefs, Mike Denton and Jamie Kline, were fortunate to fly to Alaska and participate in this voyage to acquire the first catch of the season!

The Dutch Harbor Red King Crab Legs will be served chilled or hot with drawn butter.  Recommended wine pairings from OCEAN PRIME Director of Beverage Ryan Valentine include Sauvignon Blanc, Albarino and – of course – Champagne. Prices will vary by location.

WHERE: Ocean Prime Boston; 140 Seaport Blvd., Boston, MA 02210

WHEN: The Dutch Harbor Red King Crab will arrive October 13, 2016 with a second shipment to follow on October 26, 2016
