Blue Crab Meat

Jumbo, Lump and Claw Crabmeat Transform your Summer Recipes

Just can’t get enough of crabmeat, but your fingers need a rest from the crack’n & pick’n?  Our crab houses along the Bay crack the crab for you.  Separating jumbo & lump from the body and claw from the legs and claws, our fearless pickers remove all the shells and pack the meat in a handy sealed plastic tub weighing 1 pound.  How do the meats distinguish themselves?  Diverse and distinct for authentic recipes, each meat serves a purpose for you, the master chef. 

Jumbo:  Prized for showboating crabmeat with large tender pieces, jumbo tastes clean with a delicate salty-sweet flavor.  Possibly add this choice to cream of crab to delight the diner with huge crab pieces resting in a spoonful.  Prepare your ingredients: jumbo & lump crabmeat, half-n-half, butter, parsley, and seafood seasoning.

Lump:  Similar to the esteemed jumbo, lump offers smaller pieces when the recipe calls for a mixture of pallets and a large crab piece may detract from the experience.  Sometimes you want to serve an appetizer that starts the conversation right!  Mini Crab Melts might do the trick. Prepare your ingredients:  gruyere cheese, sourdough, lump crabmeat, and tomatoes.

Claw:  For the claw-cracker in you, this meat satisfies a sweeter and richer meat that has a shredded texture.  Looking for a hint of crab, but the crab serves as a co-star to other ingredients, try claw.  Dishes with showy sauces, rich dips and hearty soups enjoy claw.  Here’s a thought.  Whip up some Crab Guacamole.  Mix claw crabmeat, avocadoes, red onions, cilantro, limes, garlic, salt & pepper in this show starter.
