Dressed Crab
100g white crab meat and 60g of brown crab meat in each

Hand-picked white and brown crabmeat served in a scallop shell.

Brown Crabs are the classic choice for lovers of seafood. The white crab meat taken from the legs and the claws has a sweet, delicate taste. The brown crab meat is considered more distinct and fuller in taste. The combination of both meats within the dressed crab gives a perfectly balanced product.

Native to the coastlines of Cornwall and Devon, the Brown Crab or Edible Crab is a staple catch in the fishing ports around Cornwall and Devon. The white meat from a crab's legs and the claws has a sweet, delicate taste while brown crab meat is considered more distinct and fuller in taste.

Please note, occasionally products may be unavailable or replaced from a different source due to bad weather conditions, seasonality and current circumstances

We will donate £1 for every online fishmonger order over £50 to Dive Project Cornwall. We want to support their quest to protect the marine environment to save our oceans for future generations.
