Cooking

Defrost before cooking.

Our soft shell crab comes uncleaned. To clean them simply lift up the soft sides on the top of the shell, this will expose the gills. Then use a pair of scissors to cut them off. Then pat dry and coat in flour and spice. Heat a pan on a medium high heat and add oil. These need to be shallow fried preferably so be sure to use more oil than usual. Add the crabs with their shells on and fry for 4min a side.

Alternatively, you can boil them for roughly 8min on a medium heat or grill them for 6min but it’s not the same as frying and getting that juicy crunch! We recommend serving with our kewpie mayo.

Excellent quality. I particularly like that they were individually packed so the crab came intact so it's not like it's frozen to another and you have parts breaking off while trying to separate them.
