A nice variation is cooking your soft shells in olive oil and butter, deglaze the pan with splash of white wine combined with fresh squeezed lemon, at least 2 teaspoon of tiny capers, chopped parsley as well as cracked pepper and salt as well to taste.
Where To Start with Seafood and More
Soft shell crabs that are deep fried and breaded are something that no one can deny. Classic sandwich always goes perfectly which is made with tomato as well as lettuce on a lightly toasted bread roll, with a hint of tartar sauce or mayonnaise spread. Just by adding coleslaw in it and you are set. Using a standard breader or coating mix will do as well but if you want to, you can create a mix of your own with half cornmeal and half flour, season it with generous amount of black pepper and garlic powder and don’t forget a pinch of cayenne. On the other hand, just a quick word of caution when cooking soft shells, there is an imminent possibility for steam to build up in its legs and claws as well, causing hot oil to burst and spatter. This can be avoided by simply pushing pin through the leg and claw segment prior to deep prying it.
