Peekytoe Body Crabmeat
“What really makes peekytoe crabs better than other crabs is the care with which they are handled, cooked and picked — essential work, because the crabs are too fragile to be shipped live.” – New York Times
1 pound cup. Picked and Cooked. Frozen.
When it comes to fresh crab meat, peekytoe remains the most sought-after due to its consistency. You can expect an unrivaled sweetness and a delicate, satisfying texture with this Maine crab. It was back in the 90s that Browne’s owner, Rod Mitchell, coined the phrase “peekytoe”. From that moment, a crab that was predominantly thrown away by Maine lobstermen became a must-have for chefs seeking the finest quality seafood.
Picked, cooked, and ready to eat, this sweet crab meat is perfect for crab cakes, salads, and stuffings. These cups differ from our premium MDI crabmeat with the combo of body meat, opposed to just the leg meat.
Important Thawing Instructions: with the lid still on, thaw lid down. Due to the shredded nature, thawing upside down will help with moisture distribution.
