Soft-Shell Crabs are a spectacular seafood delicacy, and their sweet taste and delicate texture have earned them a worldwide following. Soft crabs are blue crabs wild caught in Maryland, and have shed their outer shell. This process known as molting, occurs 18 times during the 3-year life of the crab as it matures and outgrows its hard shell. The crabs are pulled from the water just prior to molting and placed in tanks where they are held until they molt. It is in this soft, succulent stage that the soft shell crabs are processed and quickly frozen. Soft shell crabs are available year round.
Soft shell crabs can be baked, sautéed, deep fried, or pan fried. Other ways of cooking will give equally tasty results.

How to properly defrost frozen seafood: We recommend that all frozen seafood be defrosted by placing product in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours depending upon the density. Never force thaw a product by running it under water (hot or cold as it can cook the product). Not only does this reduce the flavor, but it is also a health hazard.
