Thumbnail Filmstrip of Lump Crab Meat Images
Be very gentle when handling crab meat. The goal is to keep the chunks of crabmeat together. It is recommended to look over the fresh crab meat while you prepare it, just in the rare case of some leftover shell. It is a good idea to prepare your favorite dish, and then gently "fold in" the crab meat to avoid breaking apart. If you don't want the fuss, you can buy Maryland crab cakes from Crab Dynasty that are already hand made with lump crab meat.
