Re: Where can I find crab meat?

I assumed that all non-native fish has been frozen and thawed on the Swiss fish counters?

Personally I’d use (expensive) tinned crab for the recipe.

I went to Manor in Zurich and unfortunately as I expected (hence my question) there is no food section there.
There were various crab varieties river (with a tail ????)
Cherax destructor. Known as Yabbies in Australia.

I spent a great week once paragliding in NSW, wild camping next to a river and catching and BBQing yabbies most evenings.

There were various crab varieties river (with a tail ????) and sea crab (chilled, fresh + frozen + bottled) in Globus though.
Still expensive.
Tins can be found in Asia stores in Zurich. The one at Kalkbreite http://www.newasiamarket.ch/NewAsiaMarket/ at leasts sells them. Or did the last time I went there.


If you want to try out Manor, the one is Rapperswil does have a Food section!

Fresh dressed crab fro Devon or Scotland... 5.99 GBP from the fishmonger! They would not let me take it back on the plane, bastards!

Re: Where can I find crab meat?

Some of the canned crab meat you can buy in French hypermarkets such as Carrefour and Cora just across the border, is excellent. If you happen to be travelling through Alsace, might be a good idea to get a few cans for when you cannot get fresh crab meat.

Re: Where can I find crab meat?

I bought once from the Asian store next to the Oerlikon train station (platform 8 side). you can check there.



The Migros 3M near my place has it (in small tin can).

Re: Where can I find crab meat?

Aligro has a big store in Schlieren with live crabs and lobsters in tanks. You have to be a "member", but you can sign up on the spot, get a temporary card, and walk right in and shop. The seafood section is in general very good, similar to in France.
