Softshell crabs have started to hit the streets in New Orleans. This week, I will share with you different ways to prepare these delicacies.

8 Softshell Crabs

3 tablespoons Butter, melted

3 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Granulated Garlic

1 cup Flour

Preheat broiler. Clean soft-shell crabs as necessary(see my post from 7/5/2011 on cleaning soft shells). Combine melted butter, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and granulated garlic together, and dip each crab into this seasoned mixture. Allow excess liquid to drip away. Lightly press crabs into flour. Broil under medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, turning each crab once and basting with the remaining butter mixture, until crabs are golden brown. Serve with your favorite accompaniments.

Enjoy!!!

Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!

I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
