History/Prestige of White Crab Meat: Why It’s Preferred by Many
White crab meat comes from the claws and legs of our Cornish crabs. Sweeter and more delicate in flavour than brown crab meat, it usually has a moist or flaky texture. Many people prefer the sweet but subtle taste of white crab meat over more robust alternatives in their favourite recipes involving crab.
When you see crab claws listed on a menu, you’re typically eating the crab’s white meat. White crab meat is a high-protein superfood low in carbs and fat. Eating white crab meat benefits your diet because it’s rich in many essential vitamins and minerals, including B12, iron, zinc, and selenium. It’s also high in omega-3 fatty acids to help you prevent anaemia and improve your heart and brain health.
Consider These White Crab Meat Flavour Notes & Pairings
White crab meat offers a subtler flavour profile than brown crab meat, making it the popular star of many satisfying dishes. It can be eaten cold, slathered on toast with a fresh squeeze of lemon and a hint of aioli sauce, or cooked with other fresh ingredients. White crab meat is very versatile, pairing well with virtually anything you may have on the menu. Delicate white crab meat goes well with most full-body white wines, such as a buttery Chardonnay or fruity Pinot Gris. If you’re unsure how to prepare white crab meat, our dedicated team would be happy to help with some tried-and-true recipes.
