Chesapeake Bay Pan Fried Soft Shell Crabs


Ingredients:

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

1/2 cup milk

2 eggs

6 garlic cloves, minced

3 cups saltine cracker crumbs

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 tablespoons olive oil

8 soft-shell crabs


Directions:

In a shallow dish, stir the flour together with the oregano, salt and pepper. In a second dish, mix together milk and eggs.

Add cracker crumbs to garlic, and process until crumbs are ground fine. Transfer crumbs to another dish. In a large, heavy skillet, warm the butter and oil together over medium-high heat.

Dip each crab lightly first in the flour, next in the egg mixture, and then in the cracker crumbs. Add the crabs to the skillet, in two batches, if necessary, and pan-fry them 6 to 8 minutes, turning them once.

Drain crabs, and serve immediately.
