Nearly 200,000 pounds of fresh crab meat is coming through Miami right now. Not too long ago, fresh Venezuelan crab meat was $30 a pound. However, the crabs have come on with a vengeance over the last 30 days, and prices are roughly half of their winter-time highs. Take advantage of this delicious crab meat. It’s the identical genus and species that swim in the Chesapeake Bay, Callinectes sapidus. It’s high-pressure-pasteurized (HPP) and has a 21-day shelf life.
