Our soft-crab recipes are simple and easy to prepare. Cooking times are for average-size crabs. Adjust time for smaller or larger crabs.

  • 12 soft-shell crabs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons margarine or butter

Combine eggs, milk, salt, pepper and paprika in shallow dish. Combine flour and crumbs in another shallow dish. Dip crabs in egg mixture, then in flour mixture. Place in lightly greased baking pan. Dot with margarine. Bake at 400 F until crabs are browned and tender, about 10 to 12 minutes. Serves 6.
