Soft Shell Crab Recipe

Cooking tips for how to cook soft shell crabs.

Soft shell crabs may be boiled as lobsters. They make a fine dish when stewed. Take out the crab meat from the shell, put it into a saucepan with butter, pepper, salt, a pinch of mace and a very little water; dredge with flour and let simmer five minutes over a slow fire. Serve hot; garnish the dish with the claws laid around it.

The usual way of cooking soft shell crabs is frying them in plenty of butter and lard mixed; prepare them the same as frying fish. The spongy substance from the sides should be taken off, also the sand bag. Fry a nice brown and garnish with parsley.
