No fuss – Wild Canadian Snow Crabs
These giant, wild Snow crabs are hard to find at fishmongers in Scotland. Fishmongers do not really stock them as I have found BUT you can find cooked wild Canadian Snow Crab Clusters, the premium selection which are 100% natural with no preservatives and are naturally low in fat from Costco. It says exactly that on the box. They are not always available at the frozen section as these delicious Snow crabs are only sold seasonal as of now till maybe Christmas time.
The meat is still sweet after the process of re- heating as the crabs are naturally sweet. The sweet corn cob adds sweetness to the crabs too. The end result is a delicate, soft, sweet and flavoursome platter of Snow crabs!
All you have to do is buy a box and re- heat them with 2 ingredients, combine with butter and lemon and hey…it`s ready so Lets tuck in!
You can use the crab water as fish stock or make really yummy crab bisque with your choice of vegetables, herbs and some cream 😉
