    Blue crabs go through a molting process shedding its outer shell and leaving a delicate soft shell crab that is exploding with flavor. Several methods for preparing soft shell crabs are baked, sauteed, deep fried, or pan fried. Other ways of cooking will give equally tasty results. Live soft shell crabs are available from late spring to early fall with May through August the most productive months. Frozen are available year round. All soft shell crabs are cleaned, individually wrapped, frozen and ready for preparation.

    Handling & Preparation

    Each softshell crab is wrapped, frozen and ready for preparation. Thaw in refrigerator while still in plastic, remove from plastic. Dip crabs in cold milk and then in the batter mix (your choice). Heat 1/8 inch of oil in a frying pan and saute 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and cover to keep warm. We recommend using J.O. Brand Softcrab Batter available on our accessory page. Frozen softshells can be kept in the freezer for usage at a later date.(best within 90 days)
