Our soft shelled crab weighs a generous 3.5 ounces, far larger and more economical than what is available in a restaurant. Our sushi crabs have a briny, yet subtly sweet taste, are high in protein and low in fat. We ship you a dozen flash frozen crabs. One soft shell crab makes two spider rolls, a popular sushi treat. Enjoy with some edamame and real wasabi for a true treat!
The most common method of preparing crab sushi with soft shelled crabs is to simply fry them. In a saute pan, heat oil to 375 degrees, and then cook your crabs for approximately 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. This simple dish is known as kani karaage in a Japanese restaurant. You could also wrap this delightful sweet meat in a spider roll, adding lettuce, sprouts, rice and toasted seaweed sheets to compliment the slightly sweet yet briny flavor.
Sashimi crab and crab sushi are enjoyed for the tender texture and sweet, tangy flavor. In one of our 3.5 ounce crabs, you will find 83 calories, 16 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fat. When combined with wakame seaweed salad or squid salad, you will have a low fat, high flavor meal.
The restaurant mark up for soft shelled crab is high, reflecting the cost of harvesting, shipping and preserving. Meticulous preparation takes additional time and care. Order a dozen of our sushi crabs, save a great deal of money, and enjoy a simple and delicious rendition of fried crab. Experiment with any number of preparations, from sandwich, to sushi roll, or just plain succulent crab. Use soon after your shipment arrives for best results.
