Where's a decent place to get crab meat for crab cakes in Seattle without having to travel to Pike Place? Are the cans of refrigerated crab meat sold in Trader Joe's any good?
I like the crabmeat at metropolitan market. it is not canned. it is sold in the seafood deparment.
Any good seafood market. I get mine at The Fresh Fish Co on 80th at 24th NW. They also make their own crabcakes.
Go get some fresh crabs and take out their meat - time's a'wastin.
Fresh Fish Co.
I get crabmeat from Tim's Seafood at Kirkland Parkplace. They will gladly let you try a sample before you purchase and everything I've ever purchased there has been great.
Check out Costco. Fresh Dugeness crabmeat sells for about $20 for a 1-pound container. To me, this is a far better deal -- and far less work -- than buying whole crabs at $5 to $7 a pound.
Glad to hear good things about the crab meat at MM, I luckily live a few blocks from one. I'll check out University Seafood too. Thanks!
