It's the most wonderful time of the year
It's soft shell crab season in North Carolina. This fleeting delicacy is one reason blue crabs take the top spot in North Carolina seafood landing values. All crabs shed their shells to grow, but only a few species can be eaten in the soft shell state, and the blue crab is the only commercially available soft shell product. The season generally lasts from May to early July. So get 'em while you can!
Here's a super easy tempura soft-shell crab recipe from Coastal Living
