History/Prestige: What Makes Brown Crab Meat a Delicacy?

Brown crab meat comes from the upper shell cavity of Cornish crabs. It’s less meaty than the white meat sourced from the crab’s claws and legs, often making it cheaper. Female crabs tend to have more brown meat than male crabs. Handpicking the meat helps preserve more of the robust “meaty” flavour. Brown crab meat has a unique pâté-like texture, making it an acquired taste for many. However, its bold, punchy flavour makes it perfect for sauces, stocks, and soups. Brown crab meat is a delicacy that can elevate any standard dish into an extraordinary meal fit for your family or dinner guests.

Crab meat is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and other vitamins and minerals essential for your health, including B12, iron, selenium, and zinc. It’s rich in protein while being low-fat and low-carb. Omega-3 fatty acids give you energy and support many vital body systems, including the cardiovascular and endocrine systems. Brown crab meat is especially high in omega-3 because of its higher natural fat content, making it a healthy seafood choice to incorporate into your daily diet.
