I love soft shell crab, it the most wonderful flavor!
- Start by washing crab, if they are alive the first thing you do is cut the face off if frozen save this till after you remove gills and flap.

- Lift flap on bottom rear remove it entirely, I use shears I cut a v.
- then lift the pointed end of the shell remove the gills i use a pair of shears,
- I mix 2 eggs some spice old bay garlic soy and a dash of Worcestershire, some milk, i place the dressed crabs in this liquid and place in the fridge for about 30 min, then I remove from liquid, I season each crab with garlic powder and old bay then into seafood breader, then into 365 degrees oil in a cast iron skillet………………cook flipping them over till brown and crispy, remove from oil place on paper towels let sit 4 minutes, place on a fresh bum add remoulade sauce tomato and lettuce…………………..
