Soft-Shell Crabs with Grilled Scallions and Lemon Polenta
Soft-shell crabs are in season in the spring, so keep your eye out because the soft-shell season doesn't last that long. Be sure to have the apron, lungs, and eyes removed by your fishmonger and use the crabs as soon as possible. Click here to see Getting Schooled in the Art of Mediterranean Cooking.

Soft shell crabs are delicious and affordable when they're in season (early- to mid-summer). Try cooking them in this sweet and tangy glaze for a change of pace.

I adore soft shell crabs. I could eat them 3 meals a day.

Soaking the crabs in milk helps plump them up when cooked. Combining butter and oil results in crispy crabs.

The entire crab, shell and all can be eaten. Soft shell crabs are just blue crabs who have shed their shell, and are waiting for a new one to grow. When you buy fresh crabmeat, use within a day of purchase. If it's tru;y fresh, crab will have little odor.
