You know, I was under the impression that soft shell crab season had already come and gone, I saw it for myself in fact, but this was all turned upside down when lo and behold I saw boxes of these soft little beauties all over again. I wasnt going to pass them up this time.
Soft shell crab are a little bit of a delicacy but more than that I think they are also an acquired taste, seriously you have to be ready to chomp through an entire soft crab carcass and as unappetizing as that sounds it is really quite the opposite.
Standard breading procedure but with the addition of cornmeal gives these softies the right crunch. You can have them in a salad or you can have them my favorite way and thats in a sandwich. Sometimes its wasabi mayo, sometimes its chipotle mayo but this time its siracha mayo and some fat slices of tomato on a tasty sesame seed bun. If you have never tried soft shell crab you should, it is sweet crabby sweetness like you cant even imagine.
