How do you eat softshell crabs and how do they taste?
The most popular preparation of soft shell crabs is breading and deep-frying them. However, sautéing and grilling are also common. The Spider Roll on the menu at many sushi restaurants features a fried soft shell crab. Many restaurants on the Outer Banks feature softshell crabs on their menus, as an entree centerpiece or on a sandwich.
For those that love to pick blue crabs and enjoy their meat, a softshell crab is a tasty treat. Deep frying soft shell crabs gives them a crunchy crust which gives way to the buttery soft meat inside, which is salty and sweet. Eating a fried softshell is a truly spectacular culinary experience!
