II/ How to Make Crispy Soft-Shell Crab

Step 1: Prepare the Soft-Shell Crabs

• Rinse the soft-shell crabs thoroughly under cold water, then let them drain.
• Place the crabs on a tray or plate and cut some large pieces of the back shell to make it easier to peel after frying.

Step 2: Mix the Crispy Frying Flour

• In a large bowl, mix the crispy frying flour, salt, and pepper thoroughly.
• In another small bowl, beat the eggs.

Step 3: Fry the Soft-Shell Crabs

• Heat enough frying oil in a big pan on medium.
• Dip each prepared crab into the beaten eggs, then roll it in the crispy frying flour until uniformly covered.
• Put each floured crab in heated oil. Fry crabs in oil till golden and crispy. Slowly flip the crabs to sear both sides evenly.
• Remove the crabs from the pan and drain on paper towels until golden brown.

Step 4: Sauté Garlic and Onions

• In the same pan, reduce the heat and add a little cooking oil.
• Sauté minced garlic and finely chopped onions in the oil until fragrant and lightly golden.
• Turn off the heat and let the garlic and onions cool in the pan.

Step 5: Coat with Garlic and Onion Sauce

• In a small bowl, mix the sautéed garlic and onions with the fried crabs.
• Ensure that the crabs are evenly coated with the garlic and onion sauce.

Step 6: Enjoy

• Place the crispy soft-shell crabs coated with sauce on a plate.
• Garnish with fried onions and garlic on top.
• Serve immediately with a pinch of salt, pepper, and optional dipping sauce.

The crispy soft-shell crab goes well with hot rice, toast, or as a party snack. Tender, sweet crab flesh, and crunchy shell make a great combination.
