Everyone does the holidays their own way – and seafood and shellfish are certainly a popular one! You can grab Kirkland Signature Wild Caught Whole Cooked Dungeness Crab at Costco right now – they come in a 2-pack in the refrigerated meat and seafood open cases. I’m a huge seafood and shellfish person, so make sure you invite me, okay? just kidding 🙂
Like all wild caught crabs – these are cooked and frozen on the ship – so when you purchase these in the open refrigerated meat cases at Costco, they’ve already been defrosted. These whole dungeness crabs at Costco make a special addition to any Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthday or family meal!
Tips on When to Purchase and Storage
The date on the packaging generally says they’re good for about 7 days but I HIGHLY recommend you eat them within 3 days, ideally the day of purchase. I personally do not think that refrigerated shellfish lasts for 7 days – that’s all up to you of course – but I’d hate for you to open it up on Thanksgiving or Christmas (or whatever holiday or special dinner you’re preparing) and find stinky shellfish.
When Shellfish has gone bad, I usually find it has a ammonia smell. Again, that’s surely subjective – so use your own judgement – but sharing in case that’s helpful!
Tip: If you are planning ahead, it’s worth an ask to the meat department to see if they have any that are still frozen – you can always defrost them yourself and then you can use them whenever you like! They usually don’t have them, but once in a while they do – we prefer to buy ours still frozen so we know they’re freshly defrosted.
