The Alaska shellfish popularity is dominated by King Crab, made famous especially with the wealth of reality shows surrounding these crab boats. However, lesser know shellfish species like Tanner Crab (Bairdi Crab) and Weathervane Scallops provide the similar nutritional profiles in more bite-sized and versatile portions.
You’ll get nearly 6.5 times your recommendation of vitamin B-12 from a single king crab leg. B-12 makes red blood cells and helps run your metabolism. That same king crab leg also has more than half of your phosphorus requirement for strong bones, as well as almost your entire daily need for zinc, a mineral that improves your immune health.
Alaskan Snow Crab (Bairdi Crab) is not only low in saturated fat, but also a good source of Vitamin C, Folate and Magnesium.
Weathervane Scallops are the largest scallop species in Alaska. Scallops are a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids, B12, magnesium and potassium.
