Soft Shell Crabs Sun, 05/15/11 7:47 AM (permalink)
I stopped by my local fish market Friday to pick out something easy for dinner. They make allot of prepared meals which are very good. I did purchase a Paella which they make but he had some beautiful live soft shell crabs in the display case. Only my daughter Katie and I love these so I purchased just two for me to make as an appetizer for the both of us.

I used half of this coating mix mixed with plain flour(I usually use just plain flour but thought I would try something different).

Got them all coated up.

I fried them in half butter and half olive oil.

They came out just great! I remember when Katie was little and expressed curiosity about my eating this whole crab. I let her taste it( you would have thought I had learned from the first time I let her try lobster at age 3!) and she loved it. I love that my kids are willing to try new foods but something tells me I should have held off on the expensive items!
