Do you miss that wonderful feeling of cracking into a nice big juicy crab claw and picking out its fresh, sweet meat and dipping it into a pool of hot butter? Us too!
We've got crab this week!
Fresh Rock Crabs from Santa Cruz are going out to members this Wednesday! Rock crabs are a delicious and sustainable local alternative to the infamous Dungeness crab. Many restaurants like to use them as a substitute for Dungeness, but here at FreshCatch we like to think of them a little bit more like a Western cousin of the famous Florida Stone Crabs! They have big meaty claws and a rock-hard exteriors to protect their sweet centers. Most of their meat is in their claws and the arm attached to that claw so that is what we will be delivering with shares, the body meat is minimal making it perfect for stocks! There are only two boats catching these guys so you won't be finding them at your local grocery store - this is our first time offering them so give it a try and let us know what you think!
Crabs will come already cooked (morning of delivery) and cleaned!
We will be selling bodies separately for people to make stocks with for $8/ lb
Rock Crabs will be delivered this Wednesday (9/13)
Each order comes with four recipes!
Single Orders will include 1 lb of Cooked Rock Crab Claws (between 4 - 6 pieces)
Regular orders too much seafood for you? Try a half share!
Half Share will include 1/2 lb of Cooked Rock Crab Claws (between 2 - 3 pieces)
*If you would like bodies for stock please make a note of it in your opt-in email!
