Jumbo Soft Shell Crab

$25.00

Large soft shell crabs, cleaned and frozen.

Sold as a 4-pack

Don’t let the limited harvest season limit your enjoyment of soft shells! Softies freeze exceptionally well. They retain the texture and flavor of fresh soft shells, tasting almost as good as the day they were harvested. They are easy to defrost and prepare, plus blue crabs are packed with nutrients like vitamin B12, selenium, zinc, and omega-3.

Locals Seafood freezes all sizes of softies in the spring and summer, shortly after they are plucked out of the water. 

DEFROSTING

Remove the crab from the freezer and place it on a plate in the fridge. Let it thaw for a few hours. Remove it from the packaging once it has thawed and rinse the crab before cooking. Now you’re ready to fry ’em up!

Locals Seafood

Locals Seafood started with a single item for sale: the humble shrimp. In 2010, college buddies Lin & Ryan began selling Stumpy Point shrimp out of a tailgate cooler on the side of the road in Raleigh, North Carolina. The story starts a bit earlier, though. 

Ryan was living in the Outer Banks a few years before that tailgate cooler. His fishermen friends would bring over freshly caught fish every night. They would feast on pan-seared sheepshead, crispy soft-shell crabs, and boiled shrimp. Having spent much of his life in the NC piedmont, Ryan wondered why folks further inland didn’t have better access to this resource. After moving back inland himself, he called his buddy Lin with an idea. Could they bring this fresh product to Triangle chefs, grocery stores, and consumers? Would these folks want to eat fish like monkfish, mullet, and mackerel?

The answer was a resounding yes.

Locals Seafood is still dedicated to that original idea today. Their crew drives to the coast 3 to 4 times a week to buy super fresh seafood straight from the source. They bring this product back to Raleigh, where they cut, pack, and sell it. They believe everyone in the state should have access to their coastal bounty. After all, it’s your public trust resource.
