Impress your friends - with how to pick a spider crab!

It's a bit early yet for the spider crab season but in anticipation of this fine early summer feast here goes:


Spider crab is landed to Cornish ports by potters and netters. it is not well appreciated locally but it is a delicacy in France and Spain. We hope that this film will encourage you to be adventurous and to give picking out the meat from a cooked spider crab a try - buy a few, fire up the BBQ and share the picking experience over a glass or three of a suitable early summer beverage!




It is delicious and far sweeter and often more juicy than a brown crab. Gareth Horner is a fifth generation fishmonger who owns the family business, E.Rawle and company in Newquay.
