The Smelly Alley Fish Company – fresh white crab meat, how to serve it and how to choose crab meat:


This fresh brown English crab meat is ideal in crab sandwiches because it has a stronger taste. You can also warm it with a dash of cognac and a sprinkling of a strong cheddar and flash under the grill, serve lots of brown bread and butter with it. The lower price compared to white crab meat doesn't mean that this fresh brown English crab meat is lower-quality, it's just stronger tasting - it's not an alternative to white crab meat, it's different!

Our crab meat is pasteurised. This does not affect its flavour, just how long it keeps. Unpasteurised crab meat keeps for only 2 days so we couldn't send it to you (and it's twice the price!).


Here's how to chose whether to order white or brown crab meat.
White crab meat is milder, and we think it's excellent, just right for serving just as it is in salads or sandwiches.
If you like a less stronger-tasting crab meat, order white but don't go all out for just brown meat unless you know you like it, the taste is definitely stronger than the taste of white crab meat!

Here's how to chose whether to order fresh or frozen crab meat.

Frozen crab meat is cheaper, but make sure that it's suitable for your needs - it might be cheaper, but the texture isn't as good and should perhaps be reserved for cooking. You'll find frozen crab meat here.
