It’s here! It’s here! The long awaited fresh soft crab season has made its appearance once again just in time for Mother’s Day. This season is expected to be a good one as the cold weather is finally gone and the waters have warmed quickly.

“Watermen have a short window of opportunity to harvest the soft shell crabs - about 2 hours before the crab’s shell starts to harden,” says Handy’s Manager of Fresh Sales, Chris Owens. Needless to say, soft crabs are a delicacy and much anticipated by restaurants and seafood markets all over the United States.

Soft crabs can be grilled, sautéed, or fried, which make them the perfect summertime treat. To learn more, check out our website at http://www.handyknowscrab.com and see our recipe section for some soft crab ideas.
