The 9th of March is Crabmeat Day.
If you’re a crab lover, this is a day when you won’t want to find yourself left out of the festivities (though a few crabs might rather give it a miss.)
Larger chunks of crabmeat work perfectly in pastas and salads. Small flakes are good in crabcakes, sauces, crab salad rolls, etc.
You may also wish to try kanikama: Japanese imitation crab sticks.
Treat yourself to a crab meal for dinner or a crabmeat sandwich for lunch, and learn about various types of crab.
The earliest reference to a Crabmeat Day in March that CooksInfo has found in print archives dates from 2000 in New Hampshire:
“The 8th is a dual holiday: Working Women’s Day and Be Nasty Day… Nastiness begets crabbiness, so March 9 is National Crabmeat Day” (Jacobs, Larry. Talk about big days, and each important! Nashua, New Hampshire: The Sunday Telegraph. 27 February 2000. Page D-2, col. 2.)
