In brief: Sad but true

King crab is low in saturated fat but high in cholesterol.
The butter doesn't help much but is oh so necessary. As with many things, it's best enjoyed in moderation.

All animal protein has similar amounts of cholesterol per unit weight (red meat, fowl/other white meat, seafood and fish); the difference is the amount of saturated and unsaturated fat in the meat. As noted, ADDING saturated fat, like drawn butter, just makes it worse.
