Fish Facts: Dungeness Crab is an essential flavour in the kitchen as well as a crucial shellfish in our industry. The common name comes from the Port of Dungeness, Washington where the crabs naturally flourish and is where this species was first commercially fished. Our Dungeness Crab is wild caught off the coast of Vancouver using pots, sorting takes place while harvesting to ensure optimal quality and sustainability.
Taste/Cooking: Cooked crab meat has an opaque white color and the shell changes from a greyish-black/purple to bright red. The texture of the meat is tender and delicate; however, leg meat tends to be slightly firmer. Its flavour is described as mild, sweet, and a tad nutty. Common methods of preparation include, boiling, broiling, baking, or steaming. Crab is a very versatile ingredient; however, a common pairing would be to serve with garlic/herb butter and lemon.
