We offer a choice of live female (hen) crabs or live male (cock) crabs, which are both sourced from UK waters.
Although they may be smaller than the male crab, the female crabs make up for the lack of size with their tremendous flavour. The female crabs have smaller claws so they contain less white meat, however the brown meat is sweet and delicious. Alternatively, our live male crabs are visibly bigger and have larger claws. They crabs contain a high white meat content which tastes exquisite, as well as great brown meat content. Furthermore, the large claws make it easy to pick out the white meat.
These pasty shaped crabs are considered to be the nation’s favourite crustacean. This should be more than enough for two people to enjoy a feast with the finest crab the UK has to offer. Each case consists of two whole live crabs. If you were to choose the female crab, each crab weighs approximately 750g. Whereas, the male crabs weigh 1kg each.
- 2 x live male or female crabs per case
- Each male crab weighs approximately 1kg each
- Each female crab weighs approximately 750 grams each
- Please note, there is a possibility that the crabs may be dead on arrival
- Storage: Refrigerate (0-5 degrees)
