Rockfish Spider Crab

Fresh Hand-Picked White Spider Crab Meat

Spider crabs, notable for their considerable size and spiky exoskeleton, are abundant along Cornwall's coast. These crustaceans can reach a claw span of up to 80 cm. Their claws are filled with succulent, moist white meat, which is highly valued as a delicacy in Spain and France, though it remains underappreciated in the UK despite its delectable flavor. Harvested by hand from the ‘Cornish King Crab,’ this mildly sweet, moist, and delicately flavored white spider crab meat offers a distinguished alternative to traditional white crab meat.

Free from artificial additives or preservatives, only a touch of natural rock salt is used during cooking.

A selection of Mitch's favourite recipes for Crab

Every day our expert team buy the freshest fish directly from the fleet in Brixham and from the most sustainable fisheries in the world for the online seafood market.

We prepare and portion the fish right at the quayside, just metres from where the boats land, and all the seafood is fully traceable right back to which boat caught it.

We pack and send via our carbon neutral delivery partner to your door in our eco-packaging. Our boxes and insulation are made from recycled materials, and can be recycled too.

When fish is in abundance we blast freeze it at the quayside, locking in the freshness so you can enjoy your favourite even when that specie isn't landed or the boats can't go out.
