Sauteed Soft Shell Crabs


Soft shell crab season is here! I love soft shell crabs which are so easy to make at home, just as tasting as you find out in restaurants.  The shells of the crabs are so soft that you can eat shell and meat.  This recipe is easy, fun and tasty.


4 soft shell crabs, cleaned and patty dry


2  teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning or similar crab seasoning

1 cup flour

2 tablespoon olive oil

4 cloves garlic minced

2 tablespoon capers

1/2 cup dry white wine

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley


 Season crabs with Old Bay Seasonings and dredge in flour.  Shake off excess.  Set aside.


Heat oil in large skilled.  Add crabs sauteing for about 2 minutes on each side.  Remove to serving plate.  Add garlic to pan cooking for 1 minute, then add capers, wine cooking until sauce is reduced to 1/2.  Add butter and parsley stirring until combined. Pour over crabs serve immediately.  Makes two servings.
