As we handle live crab on a daily basis, we tend to forget that many people have no idea how to handle them. This page is intended to be a brief guide for the uninitiated.
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.
Crab is clawsome! Not only is it incredibly delicious, it has amazing health benefits too. We’re very proud to supply Cornish Crab - which we believe to be the best in the world – that is pot-caught around the clear blue waters off the coast of Cornwall. Let’s take a look at this super shellfish and why it’s a cracking addition to your diet!
Seafood in general is fantastic for your health at all stages of life, but can be particularly beneficial for the little ones as they’re growing. Following on from our last post about spectacular seafood packed lunches, this week we’re looking at the health benefits of fish and shellfish for children!
Calling all health-heroes, foodies, fitness-freaks and people who love blogs with facts in them. We have crunched the numbers, researched data, looked at spreadsheets and even hired a fish-whisperer to ask the fish themselves to find out which ones are the highest in protein. Of course, our history and expertise within the seafood industry also helps a lot but we thought best leave nothing to chance.
Pasta and Seafood or “Pasta e Frutti di mare” as they probably say in Italy, is a fusion of the finest export of the Italian culture (besides the odd Ferrari) partnered with some of the heartiest seafood that gets landed into our picturesque cornish harbours daily.
It’s one of our biggest distractions here at FFT HQ – deciding how to cook and serve what we love the most… seafood! Should I make a fish pie? Perhaps a simple, grilled fillet with crusty bread and salad? Maybe a hearty stew? There’s endless ways to prepare and enjoy seafood so we’ve compiled 5 of our favourite techniques which guarantee amazing results – however you choose to eat it!

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!
Fabulous Chef Specials
Just wanted to say how fabulous your chef specials were, they really are excellent. We would highly rate them to anyone, they are absolutely first class. The crab just was the best we have had. The soups are delicious and the ready meals are exceptional. Everything is so full of flavour and generously portioned. Your fish is always brilliant but this was the first time we’d tried the specials. Congratulations to everyone involved. Guess I’ll have to order some more now !!
Best Christmas Lunch Ever!
Been meaning to post this for ages! Best Christmas lunch ever! After a walk on the cliff tops, a pint in the local it was open the box with lobsters and crab meat in (still good and cold after a night in the garage), boil some new potatoes, make a salad and sorted! Tastiest, easiest and unbeatable! As ever the lobsters and crab meat were superb - THANK YOU. x
