Good choice. We got 2 to 3 lb lobsters @ 6.99 right now which seems a good deal. When they run a king crab special it's also been about $6.99 and I'll wait for that. Have had some awful $20 crab in the past, price never seemed a good indicator of quality.

We catch those from the surf on the west coast.....

Trapped them in SE Alaska when I worked there.
Live anything is a way smarter choice than dead, frozen stuff especially at the premium they want for king crab.

I can't say "pasty" but I am familiar with the "grainy" texture. Maybe it's a byproduct of the the freezing process' effect on the cells of the tissue, but on a scale large enough to notice vs smaller crab varieties?
