A buddy is going and was wondering how well they freeze after cooking. Most likely they will be vacuumed sealed. Thanks wink.gif

I think as long as their vacumed sealled they should be okay frozen. It's the thawing process that can screw them up. Make sure to thaw in very icy water & you should be fine. I've try never to freeze my crustaceans unless absolutley necessary. Of course I work in South Boston,so I only get sea food if I'm making it that day (or weekend).

Thanks for the info guys wink.gif . I never froze crab always ate it fresh or within a couple days. I'll relay your thoughts. Thanks again

I thought all crab had to be kept alive, or cooked from a live state to save the meat? Otherwise they would release a poison that would ruin the meat. Only way I have ever had crab was frozen precooked. Of course I am from michigan and we don't have a lot of oceans near by lol. That being said I wouldn't hesitate to freeze it after you cook it.

crab is brown alive. when you buy those frozen one in the store that are redish pink. they are cooked and froze. but i cant tell you how the process should be done though.

the crab will freeze great for 3 months after that it starts to get a off flavor vacume sealing is a great way to freeze your crab you should try smoking some of the crab meat i did mine at 225 for 30 min in a heavy smoke it turned out great good luck i have trouble keeping crab around the house for a week let alone 3 months
