Easy Soft-Shell Crabs
Mix together flour, Old Bay, salt and black pepper and put in the flour mixture in a shallow dish. Pat crabs dry between sheets of paper towel. Coat both sides of the crab with the flour mixture.
In a large frying pan, pour oil to a depth of ¼ inch and heat over medium high heat.
When the oil is hot, saute crabs on both sides in the oil, approximately two minutes per side.
Serve with tartar sauce and lemon wedges.
Also great on a sandwich! Create a Soft Shell Crab BLT! Here's how: Lightly toast your favorite bread or roll; spread with mayonnaise or tartar sauce, add leaf lettuce, tomato slices and crispy bacon, top with sauteed crabs.
Can do with or without seasoning, with butter instead of oil â€“ almost anything goes!
