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 individually 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. We currently only sell Soft Shell Crabs by the dozen.
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 (Currently Unavailable)
