How To Cook And Eat Soft Shell Crabs? When you do buy frozen soft shell crabs, oftentimes they are dressed or cleaned and ready to cook. On the other hand, it will be you who need to do the prep work if it is fresh which is relatively easy. It typically starts by snipping across the front of the shell behind the eyes. This is done easily using a pair of scissors and it instantly dispatches the crab whether you believe it or not. Next thing you have to do is to lift up the half of top shell and then, remove the lungs or feathery grills, flip over the crab and pull the lower hinged plate at the bottom of shell and that is it, you are done. You might be thinking of how you can eat soft shell crabs now that you’ve pulled off the meats. Well in reality, the crab’s meat is juicy, sweet and bursts with crab flavors and the shell is pliable so you can get to eat them whole. There are 3 simple and best ways of cooking your crab meat and this is through grilling, broiling and frying. As a rule of thumb, the soft shells need to be either fried or broiled for at least 4 minutes per side totaling of 8 minutes. When grilling the crab on the other hand, it should be 5 minutes on every side.

Put flour on the crab lightly and then, fry it in the pan using butter that’s mixed with a bit of oil. A good variation for this is cooking them in olive oil and butter and deglaze the pan with splash of white wine partnered with a freshly squeezed lemon juice, a couple of teaspoon of tiny capers and chopped parsley as well as cracked pepper and salt to season.
Why No One Talks About Foods Anymore
Soft shell crabs that are deep fried and breaded are something that no one can deny. A classic sandwich made with tomato and lettuce on lightly toasted bread roll, with a hint of tartar sauce or mayonnaise spread may just go perfectly. Just by adding coleslaw in it and you are set. Using a standard breader or coating mix will do as well but if you want to, you can create a mix of your own with half cornmeal and half flour, season it with generous amount of black pepper and garlic powder and don’t forget a pinch of cayenne. But just a quick reminder, there is a possibility that steam might build up in the crab’s legs and claws causing it to burst and spatter hot oil at the same time. Well the good thing is that, by pushing a pin in the said segments before frying it, you can easily avoid this to happen.
