This Linton's Seafood 1 lb. backfin lump Maryland blue crab meat is perfect for creating delicious crab-based dishes without the hassle. This meat contains large pieces of lump and broken body meat. These pieces are smaller than jumbo lump pieces, but can be used in the same recipes. This fresh crab meat is delicious and tender. It is perfect for quiches, crab cakes, or as a stuffing and can stay refrigerated about 4-5 days. Make your patrons some delicious crab cakes or serve them a classic dish of crab imperial. This crab meat ships refrigerated and saves you from having to separate the crab meat from the shell, which allows you to spend more time perfecting each meal you serve.

Unlike crabs from other areas, Maryland blue crabs must endure four distinct seasons throughout the year. This forces these crabs to hibernate and build up fat stores. These fat stores, or mustard, are noticeably darker than other blue crab varieties and results in a heartier texture with a sweet, buttery taste. This distinguished flavor, combined with perfectly formulated crab seasoning, makes these crabs a must-have for any seafood serving establishment. Why serve your patrons something ordinary, when you can serve them something extraordinary. To ensure you're serving the most delicious crabs around, try these Maryland blue crabs.

Located on the eastern shore of Maryland, in The Crab Capital of the World, Linton's Seafood has over 30 years of expertise in serving one-of-a-kind Maryland blue crabs, lump crab cakes, and other fresh seafood. As one of the first companies to perfect seafood shipping, Linton's is the brand to trust when it comes to finding the best seafood to serve at your establishment. From mouthwatering Maryland blue crab to tender lobster, Linton's fresh seafood and other goods bring quality and deliciousness right to your door.
