National Crabmeat Day

March 9th marks the annual celebration of National Crabmeat Day, a day dedicated to honoring the delectable meat found within crabs. Crabmeat, renowned for its soft, delicate, and sweet flavor, holds a prominent place in various global cuisines. Brown crab, blue crabs, blue swimming crabs, and red swimming crabs are among the most commercially available crabmeats worldwide. In the United States, crab meat is presented in diverse forms, depending on the crab's body part and size. Notably, imitation crab meat, crafted from surimi fish, has gained popularity in the U.S. due to the labor-intensive nature of extracting fresh crab meat. It is commonly used in American sushi. Crabmeat enthusiasts can savor this seafood favorite in dishes such as crab cocktails, crab cakes, pasta, risotto, gazpacho, or eggs benedict. National Crabmeat Day is a delightful occasion for fans to celebrate and indulge in the goodness of their favorite seafood.
