"This crab's shell is particularly hard. When cooked into dish, its fat and meat bolster the body to increase your defense."
The Ironshell Crab (064 in the Hyrule Compendium) is a type of crab and common material found in Breath of the Wild. They can typically be found on beaches near bodies of water around Hyrule such as the Necluda Sea or East Necluda. They can be sold to shop-vendors all over Hyrule for 8 Rupees each.
The Ironshell Crab will restore one heart when eaten. If cooked on an open flame, Link will obtain a Blackened Crab, which restores 1½ hearts and can be sold for 12 rupees. If dropped on the ground in extremely snowy climates, Link will obtain a Frozen Crab, which restores two hearts and provides a temporary boost to heat resistance for one minute. It can be sold for 14 rupees. Ironshell Crabs can be used in a variety of recipes, and the resultant meal will provide a defense boost effect.
