Recipes & Cooking
If you are taking the crab whole we recommend you have all the utensils. It is great to present the crab at the table as the centre piece, and then everyone eating can have a go at removing the meat both from the shell and the body. We will have cleaned the crab, removing any of the bits that you wouldn't want to eat. Be careful not to eat the shell - it is as hard as it looks.
Serve with a simple green salad, some crusty bread and a large glass of Chardonnay.
Health & Nutrition
Did you know that crab meat is not only super delicious, but also super healthy. Both white and brown meat are superior sources Omega 3 oils, containing 1,892 mg of Omega 3 per 100 g of meat! Crab is also one of the healthiest sources of protein, is particularly rich in Selenium which plays a key role in the human’s antioxidant defence system, and is a rich source of vitamins (particularly Vitamin B2) and minerals.
Basically it is a superfood!
Sustainability & Provenance
Cornish Brown Crab stocks are healthy, and all of the crab that we source is pot-caught, which is one of the most sustainable methods of fishing. It is both low impact and very selective, and it allows for undersized and berried females to be returned to the water unharmed. Read more
Dear FFT, you have a new fan!
Thank you. Had two orders last week. One for me and the other was a birthday present for my cousin Pamela. She called me to tell me that the crab was the sweetest most succulent she had ever eaten! Phoned the next day to say the same about the kippers and then sent pictures on Facebook to show the fish which she had cooked with black butter!

You are probably aware that I am in receipt of my fish order from you. Really impressed by the way everything was beautifully packed. Looking forward to sampling the Dressed Crab and Cocktail Claws, and of course the Provencal Fish Stew. Thank you.

Delighted to receive our combination box on time and it is always exciting to open it and to plan a few menus using the delicious sauces. Homemade fish pie tonight! Delighted to see that you are moving towards ready cooked meals and the crab bake was great for lunch for a single person. We will be repeating that order and I would have thought there was a big market for you in these products, particularly single portions for OAPs who want something to pop into the Aga. Freezer well stocked now!
