McDonald’s Now Sells a Crab Meat Sandwich

McDonald’s is testing a crab meat sandwich in one California city

The Filet-O-Fish isn’t the only seafood option at McDonald’s anymore.

The chain has been testing out its latest experiment: crab meat. The Golden Arches will be selling a crab meat sandwich, made with snow crab meat, butter, celery, seasoned mayo, lettuce, and slices of tomato, at four locations in or near San Jose, California. If the sandwich does well, the fishy item will expand further.

To help develop the recipe for the sandwich, McDonald's enlisted the help of "Top Chef" contestant Ryan Scott. The sandwich is also expected to roll out at 250 other Bay Area restaurants by the end of 2017, but there are currently no plans to make it a national item, according to Foodbeast.

This is not the first time McDonald’s has introduced an unusual seafood option to the Bay Area; last year lobster rolls were on the menu at San Francisco McDonald’s locations only.
