King Crab

Due to its popularity amongst the locals, it is not uncommon to be served King Crab at parties in Kirkenes. It can be served in many different ways, but usually you will be given cooked crab legs from which you scrape out the meat and then eat it with bread and butter.

Celebrity Chef, Gordon Ramsey, visited Kirkenes in 2016 to catch and cook the famous King Crab. See the video under how he prepares it:
