crabs are processed from live to being “super-frozen
in a very short time to maximise their integrity and quality
It is important that “super fresh”
frozen crabs are thawed slowly (naturally) to retain
this product quality.
Follow these 3 simple steps to guarantee crab that is
sweet, firm fleshed and delicious.
Remove the required number of crabs from the freezer
and remove the wrapping by cutting along the top of
the crab from claw tip to claw tip.
Carefully remove the plastic from the crab so as not
to break the claw or legs from the crab. Place unwrapped
crabs top shell down on a draining rack, in a sealed
container in the cool room.
Ensure the crab is white side up during defrosting
for best results Remember, crabs absorb flavours readily,
keep them well clear of any other foods.
They will defrost “naturally” in the coolroom
overnight (10-12 hours) remove from container and use!
