½ cup flour Salt & Pepper, to taste
Favorite seasoning - could be Old Bay
4 tablespoons butter
4 soft shell crabs, cleaned
1 lemon, cut up into wedges
DESCRIPTION / INSTRUCTIONS
Combine the flour with the salt and pepper and favorite seasoning in a bowl or storage container. Dredge the crabs in the flour, shake off excess flour and reserve.
Heat a frying pan, large enough to hold all 4 crabs, over medium heat until hot. If you don't have a large enough pan, cook in batches.
When the pan is hot, add the butter. When the butter is hot, add the crabs to the pan bottoms up. Pan fry the crabs for 2 - 3 minutes then turn over and pan fry the other side for 2 - 3 minutes until golden brown.
Remove from pan, plate and squeeze a little fresh lemon juice on top. You can use the remaining lemon wedges to serve with the crabs. I served our crabs on top of some fresh arugula salad and new potatoes.
