14 Mouth-Watering Crab Recipes
Crab meat is a popular and versatile type of seafood. It is an excellent addition to a healthy eating plan, as it contains many nutrients, coupled with a low fat content. While crab meat does contain some fat, it is generally unsaturated fat which is typically considered heart healthy. It is also a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is absolutely good for our body.
With all that said, we still haven’t even got into the flavor of crab meat, which combines spicy, tart, sour and sweet flavors in every refreshing and tender bite. Like much of the ocean’s bounty, fresh-off-the-boat crab meat is best, as it’s sweet and tender with a hint of saltiness.
Crab can be prepared in many different ways which make it easy to include in regular meals. You should also be mindful that crab may also easily cause food poisoning if it is not treated and prepared correctly. Crab must be fresh, without a strong odor and should be kept cold or frozen if it is not eaten immediately!
