Delicious Salcombe Suppers to enjoy at home

Our friends at Salcombe Suppers offer delicious meals to enjoy at home. Using the finest local produce - including seafood from Crab Shed Salcombe - superbly tasting, convenient Suppers are available to buy from Crab Shed Salcombe throughout December.

Choose from Crab Mac & Cheese - macaroni seashells coated in a crabby smoked paprika and mature cheddar cheese sauce under a cheesy crumb - or the Fabulous Fish Pie - scallops, salmon, king prawns, smoked haddock and crab, mixed in a rich thyme and parsley mornay sauce, topped off with a chive mash and cheesy crab crumb.

Suppers cost £38, serve 4 and come frozen in a reusable glass dish. Call to order or email us at

Update on online crab sales

Sadly we have decided not to sell our crab online for home delivery this Christmas due to the continued lack of courier drivers and the absence of a guaranteed next day delivery service - which we need to ensure our crabmeat reaches you in the excellent conditions we insist upon.

Local collection

Pre-arranged collection from Crab Shed Salcombe is available. We supply white crab meat, brown crab meat, crab claws, dressed crab and 50/50 white & brown crab meat.

Please call 01548 844 280 to place your order and arrange collection or email your order to We recommend that you bring a cool bag with you when collecting.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas
