Weighty Issues with Crab Meat
Things to Keep in Mind...

Written by Cynthia Nims, "Crab"- While we American cooks are devoted to our measuring cups and spoons, much of the rest of the world uses more precise weight measurements when cooking, ad in some cases I do think it's a better system. The way you measure "1 cup crab meat" may differ from the way that I do, depending on how much you pack the crab into the cup and if it's finely flaked or in bigger pieces. For this reason, I chose to use weight measure for recipes that use bulk meat. You can either purchase just the weight you need at the store, or consider getting yourself a kitchen scale. In a pinch, though, here are some rough cup-measure equivalents:


Crab Meat by weight and measurement:

1 ounce=about 3 Tablespoons

2 ounces=about 1/3 cup

4 ounces=about 3/4 cup

5 1/2 ounces=about 1 cup

8 ounces=about 1 1/2 cups

1 pound=about 3 cups of crab meat
