Each year, around the first full moon of May, vacationers and locals on the Outer Banks are treated to a very tasty event. It’s the peak of soft shell crab season, when the wonderful local blue crabs are coming out of their shells to bring us that fresh deliciousness we all crave.
Steamers is renowned for its soft shell crabs for a number of reasons. For one, our crabs are always freshly caught by local crabbers right here on the Outer Banks. Then, we thoroughly clean our crabs, taking extra steps to remove the whole top and wash the crab out completely.
“It’s very important to us to always serve the finest and freshest ingredients, because it’s important to our customers,” says Chris Braswell, Chef and Co-Owner of Steamers. “And we pay great attention to detail in the preparation of our foods. With our soft shells, customers get nothing pure, fresh, perfectly prepared crab meat.”
Finally, Steamers serves up its delicious soft shell crabs in two tantalizing dishes, from our famous Fried Soft Shell Crab Sandwich to a Fried Soft Shell Crab Plate. There’s something to delight every taste and please every palate.
