Detail: When a crab moults, it sheds its hard outer shell and begins to form a new, larger one underneath. During this transitional phase, the crab’s shell is soft and pliable, making it ideal for consumption.

The process of preparing soft-shell crabs involves catching the crabs immediately after they moult to ensure their shells remain soft. In culinary terms, soft-shell crab is prized for its unique taste and versatility in various dishes, from sandwiches to gourmet entrees.
