Don’t be put off by their looks. They’re plentiful, sustainable and reasonably priced, and their slightly sweet, peppery, moist and subtle flavour is incredibly delicious warm or cold.

More dramatic looking than the brown crab, and perhaps a bit daunting as a result, spiders are growing in popularity in the UK. Don’t be put off by their looks. They’re plentiful, sustainable and reasonably priced, and their slightly sweet, peppery, moist and subtle flavour is incredibly delicious warm or cold.

Please note we only home deliver cooked crabs. Live crabs are always available in the fishmongers.

Depending on your perspective, picking crab meat can be a pleasure or a chore. If you’re preparing the meat for a separate recipe like a pasta dish, remove the legs and claws and set aside. Pull the body and shell apart, and scrape all the brown meat out of the shell into a bowl. Removing the grey gills from the central part of the body, cut the crab in half. Pick out all of the flesh from the honeycombed centre. Wrap the legs and claws in a tea towel and crack them open with a rolling pin or mallet. Pick all the meat out. Mix the brown and white crab meat as your recipe demands.

Crab is at its best served as it is, with nothing more than a squeeze of lemon and maybe a twist of black pepper.

Cooked crabs should be stored in the fridge, between 0ºC-5ºC, and eaten within 2-3 days. 

Do not freeze whole crabs.
