    This was my first tin that was not good on its own. The snow crab was devoid of its typical sweetness and was a lot of shredded pieces. I attempted to make a salad / spread with the usual suspects but the lack of sweetness threw me off. Could have been my tin tho.

    I’ve never had tinned crab before so wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I didn’t really care for this one. Peter is right about the lack of sweetness and lots of shredded pieces. Of course this doesn’t say “lump” anywhere, and Dan’s tin photos are representative of how my tin appeared. There are some chunks/lumps, but also lots of shredded bits, more than chunks/lumps. That’s fine, but the flavor just wasn’t what I hoped for with snow crab. I tried a little bit straight from the tin and then drained, warmed contents in a pan with some garlic butter, and used it to sauce/top a plate of spinach/cheese ravioli. I would not recommend that preparation/combo; didn’t work out as good as when I’ve done similar with other types of fish/seafood tins. I won’t be ordering this tin again, although I’m now curious to try out the cheaper crab tins at the grocery store for comparison. I will say also that while $16 feels expensive, crab in general is expensive (especially if you live far from the coast like me), and I feel the amount of crab in the tin is reasonable compared to how much I’d pay at a restaurant to get anything with a similar amount of crab meat. So, if you’re curious, give it a shot, but have a better plan for how to use it
