Maryland Soft Shell Crabs

Our soft crabs are caught locally in Crisfied, MD the crab capital of the world. Preparation. Depending on the time of year soft crabs will either ship dressed or not dressed. If they are not dressed please follow the 3 easy steps on the preparation guide to dress prior to cooking. Sizes are given for an approximation but may vary by approximately .5 inches or more.


Maryland Blue Crab Express cleans all of our soft shell crabs for your convenience after the are measured and graded by size. The cleaning process of the soft shell crabs can cause the crab to shrink up to 1/2 inch or more in many cases. This is normal and the size was accurate before cleaning. 

Soft Shells can naturally lose legs in the wild. We flash freeze our soft shell crabs to ensure safe shipping.  Legs may also break off during shipping they can still be cooked and served with the soft shell crab. 

No monies will be refunded my Maryland Blue Crab Express for soft crabs that shrink during cleaning or lost legs or claws.
