Sauteed Soft Shell Crab


Soft shell crabs are one of my favorites, and I finally attempted them myself! I try to lay off a lot of fried food, so this recipe struck my eye since it was sauteed! It was really yummy, and was a great appetizer! Hurry and get some of these before the season ends! Ingredients: 3 soft-shell crabs, cleaned and patted dry salt + pepper 1 cup flour 2 tb olive oil 3 garlic cloves, diced 2 tb capers, drained 1/2 cup white wine 1 tb butter few chive blades, chopped Directions:

Season crabs with salt and pepper and dredge in the flour, shaking off excess. Set aside. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the oil and saute the crabs until soft, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the crabs and set aside. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Then add the capers and white wine. Cook until wine has reduced to about 1/2. Swirl in the butter and the chopped chives. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer crabs to a plate, spoon sauce over the crabs.
