Fresh Dressed Soft Shell Crabs

Blue Crabs begin to shed in May in Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay.  Our soft shell crabs are dressed out per your order where they are wrapped and packaged.  Fresh dressed soft shell crabs should be consumed within 7 days (transit time should be included) and be kept under refrigeration.   Our fresh dressed soft shell crabs can be frozen.  Fresh products are always at the availability of the current environment. We do not recommend placing an order for more than 7 days in advance.

To ensure adequate refrigeration during shipping in the summer months; we may adding dry ice to the coolers.  If the product arrives frozen or partially frozen it can be immediately thawed and the fresh quality will not be  jeopardized.

Fresh products have not been frozen prior to shipment.

 Please note: Weather may affect the current availability of live crabs.  Your order may be delayed depending on current crab catch.  There is no commercial crabbing in Virginia on Sundays, so if your order is shipping on a Monday, product may not be available to ship until Tuesday. 

We ship Monday - Thursday.  Packages with Tuesday delivery dates will be shipped on Monday Next Day Air regardless of  location of delivery. 

Soft Shell Crabs can be prepared in various ways, but the most popular cooking method is coating your soft shell crab in your favorite breeder and deep-frying them.

Soft Shell Crabs are graded by size

  • Primes - 4 1/2 to 5 inches
  • Jumbos - 5 to 5 1/2 inches
  • Whales - over 5 1/2 inches

Great product

Lightly floured and deep fried at 350 for two minutes a side (make sure to dry them off well first) was perfect for me. Served on bulky rolls with yum yum sauce, lettuce and tomato. Everybody was very pleased
