TermDefinition
snow crab A type of crab found in the North Pacific region, may be cooked by frying or broiling but the easiest way is to steam them in a large pot with a little boiling water until they turn a nice orangey color. Live crabs should be cooked the day they are purchased and refrigerated until cooking. Cook raw crabmeat within 24 hours of when the crab dies. Crab can then be shelled and used in recipes or dipped in drawn butter as with lobster.
