The Best Money Can Buy: The Prestige of Dressed Cornish Crabs

Dressing a crab means removing and separating all of its meat into the respective white and brown parts and then artfully arranging it inside the shell for the ultimate presentation. We may be biased, but our dressed Cornish crabs are one of the best fresh seafood options available on the market that your money can buy. White and brown crab meat are both rich in essential vitamins and nutrients, including zinc, selenium, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids. Typically sourced from the crab’s legs and claws, white crab meat has a flaky texture and a sweet but subtle flavour profile. Typically sourced from the crab’s upper shell cavity, brown crab meat has a pâté-like texture and a bold, “meaty” flavour profile.

Cornish Dressed Crab Meat Flavour Notes & Pairings

Undoubtedly, crab meat can elevate any ordinary dish into an extraordinary one found in the fanciest restaurants worldwide. Dressed crab meat can be eaten straight from the shell, spread over toast with a little lemon zest, or combined with other fresh ingredients to create a unique savoury dish. We suggest pairing it with a classic Chablis or other full-body white wine to bring out the rich, delicate flavours of our Cornish dressed crab meat.
