chair de crabe
Explanation:
'crab meat' would be translated as 'chair de crabe'. But 'goat meat' would be 'viande de chèvre' and 'cow meat' would be 'viande de vache'.

The operative word for 'meat' is 'viande'.

You also have the alternative 'viande de crabe' though I think it would be 'chair de crabe'.
