Seafood in general can be a little intimidating to cook at home. Let us let you in on a little secret...it's often much easier than meat! Once the mystery (but watch the mercury) is taken out of shellfish, you'll wonder why you ever coughed up $30 for a the soft-shell crab special. How many minutes do they actually take to cook? 2-3. How much prep time is involved? Maybe 15. If you throw in cracking open a beer alongside them as Sassy Radish suggests, maybe 15 1/2. So how do we break down a soft-shell crab night at home? Well luckily this handy Cornmeal-Crusted Soft Shell Crab recipe is ready to go on Sassy's blog. Bonus: her steaming side of hilarious commentary will surely help combat that crabby mood you're in.
