Soft-Shell Crabs -- Phoenix area?

misohungrychewlow | Jun 6, 2007 10:27 PM

Thanks to all who are scouting Copper River salmon, a special seasonal treat for desert dwellers, and as a semi-rehabilitated New England guy, the lobster tips are most welcome, too (apparently a very lean year according to the NE and Tri-State boards).

The time is now, and dwindling, for soft-shell crab -- east coast blue crabs, specifically, although I lived in Texas some years back and they have blue crabs, too -- not sure when they shed their shells, though.

Hounds: Where can a hungry boy find soft-shells locally??? Many sushi bars offer them, but based on price and steady availability, they are frozen -- not that there's anything wrong with that, but still ... any suggestions?
