Japanese Spider Crabs

Japanese spider crabs inhabit the deep sea around the coast of Japan and are caught mainly by trawlers with their dragnet fishing.
The best way of cooking spider crabs to bring out their deliciousness is steaming and roasting in a covered pan. This helps the crab butter not to melt away from the crust and keep its good flavor and taste. The crab butter (also called crab innards) of spider crabs is exquisite for its rich and creamy taste, therefore makes the spider crabs very unique and different from all the other kinds of crabs.

You can enjoy the crab paw meat either by roasting it for more enriched taste or by sashimi for more natural and fresh taste. Tempura, the deep fried crab paw meat, is also recommended to enjoy its flavor mixed with its natural salty taste.
Since each individual spider crab has its own meat quality and taste, the keen eyes, reliable skills and the rich experience of the expert cooks make a big difference in cooking the crabs.
Above all, please come to Marukichi and try our spider crabs, the best Japanese spider crabs that you can ever meet.
