Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille's Alaskan King Crab
’Tis the season for Alaskan king crab! The delicate, soft, sweet-tasting, and colossal crabs have arrived at Luke Wholey’s Wild Alaskan Grille, and Wholey is serving them up in a number of preparations for a variety of savory experiences. Enjoy one full pound of these legs, hailing from Alaska’s Dutch Harbor — where Wholey says 80 percent of the catch is shipped to Japan, the country with the highest quality standards of seafood — tender straight up. Garlic smashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and warm butter complete the meal. Or, take the sushi route with Wholey’s signature Wild Alaskan Roll. The succulent crab is swaddled in a pink soy wrapper with cucumber, avocado, tobiko, scallion, and mango coulis and tempura flakes on top.
