Besides, what's better blue crab or Dungeness?
I popped a mouthful of Dungeness claw into my mouth. It has a decidedly meatier texture than the delicate blue, and a brinier flavor that tastes more nutty and wild than sweet. Across the table, Nims praised the delicate, sweet seafood flavor that has made the blue crab famous.
Likewise, is Dungeness crab the same as king crab? Alaska king crab: The Alaska king crab, the largest of all crabs, is mostly sold as cooked and frozen meat from the legs and claws. Dungeness crab: The Pacific coast from California to Alaska is the source for the Dungeness crab, one of the larger species.
Then, which is better snow crab or Dungeness crab?
For many crab species claw meat (if any) and leg meat is considered better than body meat due to appearance (whole lumps) and texture (less stringy). Dungeness crabs are a West Coast favorite known for their tasty, very sweet meat. They have thinner, smaller legs than King and Snow crabs.
Are Dungeness crabs good?
ALL CRAB IS good crab. Snow crab and rock crab are both excellent, too, if you can get them. But Dungeness is the best. At its freshest, Dungeness crab tastes only as oceanic as the wind off the water, more delicate and closer to sweet than anything from the bottom of the sea should imaginably be.
