The world of seafood cuisine is as vast and varied as life under the sea. Just as is the case with any other type of cuisine, there are certain recipes that just taste better and fresher than others. This isn’t just because of the way these dishes are prepared, but because of the kind of seafood used in them. This is especially the case when it comes to shellfish, as there are certain types of crabs that taste better than others when used properly. That leaves us with this question: what is the best kind of crab to eat? We break down a few noteworthy examples below!
We’re willing to argue that blue crabs are the most recognizable crab on the market. One look at both the name and the makeup of this crab should tell you everything about why this is! Blue crabs, as their name suggests, are the only type of crab out there with a blue hue. This isn’t the only reason why they’re so noteworthy; they are also incredibly sweet! This flavor profile is why many people choose this crab for their crab cake recipes, but it also works well as a regular seafood dish.
Alaskan King Crab
Would it be a profile of the best crabs to eat without mentioning the most prolific crab that we have on our menu? It should go without saying how healthy consuming the Alaskan King Crab can be, but this perk is far from the only reason why this menu item is so noteworthy. This type of crab has a delicate taste, which helps to make it one of the more popular types of crab out there. You’ll find the best parts of the crab in its legs and claws – in fact, most of the rest of the crab isn’t edible at all!
Dungeness crabs are indigenous to the west coast, but they’ve recently been found on the east coast as well! They are highly revered along the coasts from Alaska to California. It’s most worthy for having a flavor that is a good middle ground between the two types of crabs we’ve previously mentioned. Dungeness crabs are a good mix of delicate and sweet, which has made them a hotter commodity on the west coast. If you ever get the urge to go to California, trying a dungeness crab should be in your future!
