i got a great deal on backfin blue crab last week, the kind that comes in a plastic tub and needs refrigeration. i had to go out of town unexpectedly so i ended up freezing about a pound and a half of it awayn
so, when i pull it out of the freezer, can i expect it to still be any good for making crabcakes and such? or at least some chowder?

Sure. Most crabmeat that you see in the grocery fish case was previously frozen. Of course, crabmeat cocktail is probably not the first choice for previously frozen, but anything sauteed or baked should be just as good as before frozen. Crabmeat omelet, crabmeat and pasta? Post up a good crabcake recipe if you have one.

Thaw, separate and drain well, put on flat surface to separate more and pat with paper towels to get the moisture off and dry. I do this with any frozen fish.

Go to Phillips Seafood website. Shirley Phillips Crab Cakes. I made them the other night and broiled them. They were awesome!!!! I made my own tartar sauce too. That was mayo, sweet pickle relish, little bit of onion cut real fine and a little lemon pepper let it sit for an hour. It was the best tartar sauce I have ever had.
