Details

With an unforgettably rich taste and a delightful, hearty texture, these Linton's 5 1/4" medium seasoned steamed medium Maryland blue crabs will have your patrons cleaning their plates and ready for more. These crabs come steamed and moderately seasoned to perfection which saves you valuable prep time.

Whether you're creating classic Maryland crab cakes, serving a wholesome pasta dish, or handing your patron a shell-cracker and letting them have at it, these crabs provide the consistency, quality, and palatability your establishment needs.

Moderately coated with seasoning specifically formulated to complement the unique taste of Maryland crabs, these crabs have a true Chesapeake flavor that is utterly delicious. This crab meat is incredibly tender and melts in your mouth. An excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, crabs are used in a wide range of dishes. Explore this versatility and create foods that fit the needs of your establishment.

These crabs are shipped refrigerated. Be sure to refrigerate these crabs upon arrival. To prepare these crabs, put equal parts vinegar, beer, and water in a large pot. Place a rack just above water level for the crabs to steam on. Layer the crabs, sprinkling them with seasoning and lightly salting them for extra flavor, then steam them for 6-8 minutes, being careful not to dry the meat. There is no appreciable loss of quality from re-steaming. A general rule of thumb is to have 8-12 crabs per person if you are only serving crabs, or 6 crabs per person if you plan to serve other food.

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.
