Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
18 live soft shell crabs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
2 ounces lemon juice
3 dashes soy sauce
1 cup flour
3 eggs -- beaten
2 cups plain breadcrumbs

Clean crabs (refer to how to clean crab procedure) but do not remove top
shell. Rinse well in cool water. Place the crabs on a sheet pan and
season with salt, pepper, lemon, soy sauce, garlic power and onion powder,
then refrigerate for at least two hours.

Place flour in one bowl, eggs in another, and bread crumbs in the last.
Roll crab in the flour, dip in the eggs, and then coat with the bread
crumbs. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Heat a skillet with about 1 inch of oil. Sauté crab on one side for 4 to
5 minutes, turn and continue until crab is crispy. Place browned crabs in
oven for 8 minutes until hot all the way through and crispy.

Serve with cocktail sauce, remoulade, a green sauce, or a creamy Dijon
sauce. Always serve the sauce on the side.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
