    5.0 stars from 2 reviews

    The crab base has excellent flavoring ability. We use as base for all our seafood sauces. We also found that it works well when we make crabs in a white wine sauce - a real extra flavor boost.! We are now going to try some of their other base products.
    Have used Minor's crab base for years as a staple in my soon to be famous cream of crab soup. Adds great flavor and not too salty for my recipe.
