Maryland Soft Shell Crabs - 8

Overview

Caught just after dropping their hard outer shell, soft-shell crabs are a delicacy, with their sweet taste and silky texture. Fully cleaned and flash frozen, our soft-shells are sized "medium", a small-sized crab about 3.5-4" in diameter. Enjoy in sandwiches, or lightly sautéed. 1-2 is a serving.

These soft shell crabs arrive cleaned and frozen. If thawing crabs, thaw under refrigeration before cooking. DO NOT THAW OR COOK IN PACKAGE. Cut film to remove crabs.

For each of the following, unwrap soft shell crabs then thaw thoroughly, preferably by leaving them covered, in the refrigerator.

Sautéing: Sprinkle soft crabs with salt and pepper. Coat crabs with flour (or substitute). Sauté crabs in a hot frying pan in a small amount of cooking oil or margarine until golden brown, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

For an extra crispy crunch when baking, cook crabs at 350°F for 8 minutes, flip and cook for 4 more minutes.
