Flavor Profile

A world standard for premium crab, sweet, flavorful and semi-nutty, Dungeness has been likened to the shellfish version of an artichoke heart. Some compare the crab’s meat to that of a Maine (American) lobster, but more tender. Leg meat is slightly firmer than body meat. Live Dungeness crabs are purplish-brown in color. When cooked, the shell turns bright orange. The cooked meat is opaque white.Live crabs should be active in holding tanks.Shell color of whole cooks should be bright red; the back should not be cracked, and all legs should be attached.
