I love fresh crab meat, but I have to say its a bit of chore removing all that succulent white meat but you are rewarded by its taste. Crabs are very reasonably priced when you consider the cost of lobsters which has a similar flavour. When choosing crabs choose ones that are heavy for their size. If you wish to forgo the job of removing the meat, buy white crab meat frozen or in cans. This recipe features with our Crab Claw recipe, where I use the crab meat from the legs of the crab for this recipe.
