Co-Captain Anna is just returning from a busy season harvesting Golden King crab in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. Back in her home kitchen, she took a moment to share one of her favorite recipes for king crabs legs: King Crab Pasta Carbonara. Slightly sweeter and lighter than its Red King cousin, Golden King crab is the perfect choice for this dish.
