Today's Reason to Celebrate

Crab Meat Newburg Day

Today is Crab Meat Newburg Day! Crab meat newburg (often shortened to simply “crab newburg”) is a rich, creamy seafood dish made with lump crab meat, butter, cream, sherry, eggs, and spices.

Did you know that crabs are found in all of the world's oceans and on land? They are divided into three types—freshwater, terrestrial, and semi-terrestrial. Crabs are prepared and eaten in many popular dishes such as crab cakes, bisques, and, of course, crab newburg. Certain varieties like the soft-shell crab can be eaten whole.

Crab Meat Newburg Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in a delicious seafood delicacy. Pick up some fresh crab meat on your way home and try out a new recipe! Bon appétit!
