Crab meat is an excellent source of protein, important for muscle growth and cell regeneration. It is also rich in minerals, Potassium and Phosphorus, and Omega-3 acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart and brain. Its high levels of Vitamin C help boost the immune system and improve your vision.
Crab meat is a great addition to many seafood dishes including salads, soups, omelettes and souffles and can be used as an alternative in recipes where raw crab meat is required, so it is a great choice for people who are not allowed to eat raw seafood, as any micro-organisms are killed during pasteurisation. Try pairing your crab meat dish with a delicate but punchy white wine to really emphasise its sweet flavour.
