Crab meat is an excellent source of protein, important for muscle growth and cell regeneration. It is also rich in minerals, Potassium and Phosphorus, important for bone health as well as regulating blood pressure and fluid balance. Crab Meat is a great source of 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. Try pairing your crab meat dish with a delicate but punchy white wine to really emphasise its sweet flavour.
