Frozen Sashimi Grade Soft-Shell Crabs
This product is available during these seasons:
Soft-shell crabs are commonly deep fried whole and used for spider rolls and other popular sushi rolls. They are also a pleasure to eat outside of sushi environments, such as with butter, lemon and capers; tucked between sandwich buns; or served atop salads. When it comes to cooking soft-shell crabs, they respond best to frying and pan searing. Due to their lack of hard outer shell, boiling them will cause them to fall apart.
Our soft-shell crabs are the farmed hotel (large) size. They come in packages of 6, and each crab weighs approximately 2 ounces. They are a product of DNI Group and originate in Vietnam.

Soft-shell crabs are not a separate species of crab. They’re crabs – most typically blue crabs – that have recently molted and have a new shell that is still soft and edible.
