It’s no secret that we love crab! If you’ve ever been to a “Crab Pick,” you know that getting all that sweet, juicy meat out of a crab is hard work. Luckily, when you want to make a crab dish at home, pasteurized crab meat from your local grocery store can come to the rescue!
Let’s talk about our love of pasteurized crabmeat. It’s a sustainable seafood product that super convenient and gives you so many options for creating quick-and-easy seafood meals or snacks the whole family will love.The flavor crabmeat adds to a dish is second-to-none and it’s delicious in salads, sandwiches, pastas and appetizers. Crabmeat also happens to be a tremendous source of lean protein (it’s a perfectly light choice) and is high in omega-3s. What’s not to love, right?
And, if you didn’t know, today is also National Crabmeat Day – so we’re celebrating the versatile seafood by featuring five of our favorite kid-friendly crab recipes, all of which you can make in a pinch when you’re feeling tired and hungry.
