The Instacart guide to crab claws
About crab claws
Crab claws are a delicious favorite among seafood lovers. Though they're not always easy to get to, the effort involved in preparing and eating them is part of the fun of feasting on crab. There are many different types of crab claws that you might encounter as you're shopping. Some common options include:
- Stone Crab: The clear favorite for crab claws, stone crabs have a particularly significant amount of meat in their claws. Their sweet flavor makes them especially popular, though they also come with a higher price tag.
- Jonah Crab: Jonah crab claws are an affordable option similar in taste to stone crab claws. They're flaky and meaty with a sweet flavor, though they're not quite as sweet as stone crab. Jonah crabs are also smaller, and their claws are sometimes sold as cocktail claws.
- King Crab: The claw meat in a king crab is a bit firmer than other varieties. This meat is moist and flavorful with a rich, sweet taste. This is a larger variety of crab.
- Snow Crab: Snow crab claws are easily mistaken for king crab. They're tender, moist, and sweet, though the meat is a bit more fibrous than king crab.
If you purchase crab claws inside the shell, you'll need to laboriously remove the meat before you can enjoy them. You can do this by striking the claw firmly on the back or the rounded side of the knuckles with the back of a spoon. You should then be able to peel back the shell and reveal the claw meat. The claw has a hard membrane inside that you will need to pull the meat off of as well.
