    When stuffing soft-shell crabs, I always look for the females of the species first. They not only have that wonderful flavor, but they are usually full of the rich roe that was made famous in she-crab soup. You can always tell the females prior to cooking. They’re the ones with their fingernails painted red. If you don’t believe me, look for yourself next time.
