How To Freeze Crab Meat
Wrapping and packing the crab meat to put it into the freezer is the easiest part of the process.
Paper towel (for fresh crab only)
Medium-sized freezer bag
A straw (optional, but recommended)
A permanent marker
Space in the back of your freezer
If you've removed fresh crab meat from the shell, rinse the meat under cold running water first and pat it dry with paper towel.
Tightly wrap the crab meat in cling wrap. Double-wrap it into a package.
Place the wrapped crab meat in a freezer bag. Gently press the air out of the bag, and seal it completely.
Straw "vacuum seal" trick (optional): Slide a straw into the bag and suck out the air so the bag "shrinks" around the crab meat packet. Slide the bag down the straw as you inhale, and quickly seal the bag while you remove the straw.
Write today's date on a freezer label, stick it to the bag, and place the bag in the back of your freezer.
