If you need another reason to start eating seafood this spring -- aside from these amazing clam recipes and lobster rolls -- we have got it. Soft-shell crabs are coming into season and we have a very limited amount of time to enjoy them.

If you haven't tried or even heard of soft shell crabs, consider this your lucky day. You've never had anything that tastes as perfectly fresh as these, with just the right amount of ocean saltiness. These crustaceans are the game changer of seafood.

Basically, soft-shell crabs are blue crabs that are shedding their shells -- making them a lot easier to eat. During the summer months when they're in season, restaurants serve them in all sorts of interesting ways. But we think you can make them ever better at home. Give it a shot with the recipes below.
