How long can I keep crab meat in the fridge?

onrushpam | Jun 18, 201106:05 PM     14

I have half a container of lump crab meat in the fridge. (Used half for a grilled snapper with crabmeat stuffing that was less than highly successful. DH loved it, I thought it blah.)

I don't really want to freeze it, because I'd like to stuff some tomatoes with crab salad. A Google search found a couple of seafood purveyors that say it can be held in the fridge for up to 10 days. True? That sounds crazy to me. It's not the pasteurized canned stuff. This is lump meat picked from cooked fresh blue crabs.

What say y'all?
