Preparing soft shell crabs....

TSQ75 | Apr 27, 2010 07:03 PM

Ok, recipes abound for how to fi these buggers...but everyone seems to be going from already cleaned and prepared soft shell crabs...

well, thanks to my CSF, i'll be blessed with some LIVE soft shell crabs later this week. how do i "Take care" of them?! one thing has me literally snipping off their faces with scissors...can i just pith them? what additional cleaning is needed?
