Do you consider yourself a crab-eating connoisseur?

If you do love crabs, you already know that Chesapeake Crab Co. has received the honor, “Best Maryland Blue Crabs 2018-2019.”

“Best Crabs” means freshly caught crabs in wild and healthy conditions.  We surpass our competitors by using the Traditional Chesapeake Bay Grading Scale.”  From the top shell’s point-to-point, we measure small (5”-5.5”), medium (5.5”-6”), large (6”-6.5”), x-large (6.5”-7”), and super (7”-up).  Then we follow the Chesapeake Bay recipe in spicing the crabs with JO Spice and cooking them in large cast iron steamers.  Our dependability sums up our award-winning status.  We use specialty coolers and your selected date to ship your dozen, half bushel or bushel right to your kitchen!

Let’s just say your picking for a recipe.

Map out the crab for that cuisine.  The back-swimming legs boast jumbo ultra-white and clean tasting meat.  Possibly, consider a Classic Crab Benedict with Old Bay Hollandaise Sauce.  The rich zesty cream embellishes the large eye-pleasing huge crab pieces.  Directly under the apron area of the crab, you’ll find lump meat.  Just as clean looking and equally succulent as the jumbo, this meat fits the authentic Maryland Crab Cake perfectly.  Aim to please with a golden-brown crispy cake!  Finally, the claws crack open with a browner meat that has a crabby-tangy flavor that soaks in juices and sauces from your recipe majestically.  Try whipping up a rich and creamy Greek Crab Dip for those just hanging around the kitchen waiting for the main course.  No matter if you pick for a creative recipe or an old-fashioned crab feast, know that you’re getting the best with Chesapeake Crab Co.!
