FEATURED SEAFOOD Soft Shell Blue Crabs

Fried softies are a summertime favorite for southerners. But you’ll have to face your fears and clean soft shell Blue Crabs before you can cook them.

Here is a prep method from the Outer Bank’s own Wes Stepp, chef at Red Sky Cafe in Duck, NC. We encourage our customers to place their live soft shell crabs in ice water to numb them before cleaning.
