Despite the difference in name, soft-shell crabs are of the same specie as regular, hard shell crabs. They have a soft shell simply because they have shed their old hard shell and are in the process of developing a new one. Soft-shell crabs are eaten whole, shell and all, rather than having to pick out the delicious meat. The meat inside is sweet and bursting with that pure crab flavour. The most popular way of eating this delicacy is having them battered and deep fried or baked. However you decide to prepare them, our soft-shell crabs are cleaned, individually packed, frozen and ready to cook.
