Breaded Soft Shelled Crabs
|Fine bread crumbs||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Dried oregano||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Dried basil||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Minced parsley||1 Tablespoon|
|Butter/Margarine||2 Tablespoon, melted|
|Extra virgin olive oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Soft shelled crabs||8|
To prepare breading, mix bread crumbs with oregano, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper.
Spread on a flat dish.
Combine melted butter and olive oil and pour into a shallow bowl.
Roll crabs in melted butter and then dust generously in bread crumbs, patting crumbs so they stick securely to the crabs.
Preheat stovetop grill.
Cook crabs over medium-high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes, turning once.
Crabs are cooked when the color changes from bluish to a reddish hue and they become slightly firm to the touch.
