Bring the bounty of the sea to your tables with this Handy special crab meat! In the warm waters off the coast of South East Asia, Pelagicus crabs (Portunus spp) are sustainably harvested year-round, offering a consistent and dependable supply of delicious crab meat. These crabs are steamed live to provide the best possible flavor and texture, then their meat is pasteurized for freshness and inspected with a black light to ensure that no shell fragments remain. The result is delicious, virtually shell-free, high-quality crab meat that you can use to create popular and profitable menu items all year long! This special crab meat combines backfin and white body meat for an economical yet delicious product.

Featuring a clean, medium-bodied, buttery flavor, a tender bite, and a pure white color, this special crab meat offers great taste and presentation. Perfect for making crab cake bites as an appetizer, the white meat's natural flavors combine easily with seasonings and bread crumbs for a true crowd pleaser at catered events and buffets. Combine the crab meat with your favorite bread crumbs, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, seafood seasoning, lemon juice, and fresh chives, for a light, savory flavor profile. Fry or bake these crab cake bites until they're golden brown for an irresistible, crisp texture and presentation. Serve with a lemon-garlic sauce or signature remoulade sauce for the finishing touch. Versatile enough for sandwiches, crab dip, or seafood salad, this special crab meat is sure to become a favorite on your menu! It's packaged in a convenient 1 lb. can to ensure its freshness.
