We love crab meat recipes so much that we decided we needed to put together a roundup of 28 of the best ones!
Although we are from Maryland and crabs are in our blood, you really don’t have to be a Marylander to love them too!
You’ll love these crab meat recipes!
Not only are they SO tasty, but if you’ve ever been lucky enough to partake in a crab feast you know that there’s nothing like it!
The hammering, breaking, and showing off the big pieces you’ve worked so hard to get makes it all the more rewarding.
Plus, you’re enjoying the company of friends and family.
And afterwards you can look show off your “battle wounds” from cutting your fingertips with the shells of the crabs!
Ah, but it’s SO worth it!
Just the taste of crab meat always reminds me of good times, and celebratory occasions!
