Lets' Talk Crabs
CRAB THAT IS JUST CRAB.
Our dressed crabs and crab meat are just crab, you will find other dressed crabs for sale that have breadcrumbs added to the meat to bulk it up, we don't do that. You will also find other dressed crabs with meat that has been pasteurised so that it last longer, we don't do that either.
We simply cook the crab and pick the meat by hand and pop it into the crab shell for the dressed crabs or into bags for crab meat. We vacuum seal both the dressed crab and crab meat and it goes into the chiller ready to be packed.
HAND PICKED CRAB MEAT - THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
Picking crab meat takes skill, you need make sure the feathers or dead mans fingers are removed completely as they aren't nice to eat and then ensure that the little bits of broken shell stays out of the meat. We don't churn the brown meat into a paste, so it takes delicate fingers to make sure it retains it's texture.
DRESSED CRAB - HOLD THE MAYO
As I mentioned our dressed crab is just crab meat, we don't add breadcrumbs or mayonnaise, seasoning, preservatives or decorative prawns. We believe that it is best as simple crab meat and if you would like to add a twist then you can, it's easier to add these things than take them away!
