Snow & Crab is a casual seafood restaurant in the Sunrise Center on Sunrise Way at the corner of Tahquitz. Perfectly cooked crab legs, mussels, and garlic shrimp will impress you at the first bite. Most customers make their order to go.
The restaurant’s menu showcases a mouthwatering selection of fresh seafood, particularly focusing on their specialty – snow crab. Snow crab is a popular type of crab highly valued for its delicious meat. It is native to the cold waters of the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans.
These crabs have a distinct appearance with their long legs and spiky shells. They typically range in size from 4 to 6 inches in length, although larger individuals can be found. The shell is usually reddish-brown in color and is covered with tiny hairs that help trap heat and keep them warm in frigid waters.
One of the main reasons why snow crabs are so sought after is their sweet and delicate flesh. The crab meat has a flavor often described as succulent and buttery. It has a firm texture and is typically white with a hint of pink or reddish color.
Snow crab is not only prized for its taste but also for its nutritional value. It is low in fat and calories but high in protein, making it a healthy choice for seafood lovers. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12, zinc, and selenium.
Aside from their incredible crab offerings, Snow & Crab also serves various other delicious seafood options. From succulent shrimp to flavorful lobster, their menu promises something to satisfy every palate.
