Ingredients serves 2
- 2 soft-shell crab
- Old Bay seasoning
- olive oil
- lemon wedges for serving
- freshly ground salt
- freshly ground pepper
Mix flour and Old Bay seasoning. You can use as much or as little Old Bay as you like; I used 1 T for 2 C flour. Dredge the crabs in the flour mixture.
Melt butter in a splash of olive oil so it doesn't burn. Sauté crabs, upside down for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and sauté until golden brown, another 2 to 3 minutes more.
Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Then transfer to your serving plates with lemon wedges for serving. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
I made soft shelled crabs once for the first course of a dinner party and was pleasantly surprised by how easy they were to prepare.ReplyDelete
