2 c flour

2 c panko bread crumbs

3 tbsp paprika

1 tbsp cumin

2 tbsp Old Bay seasoning

2 tbsp ground black pepper

2 tbsp granulated garlic

2 tbsp corn starch

½ dozen eggs

1 cup of water

1 gallon of canola frying oil

Coleslaw Ingredients

½ head white cabbage (shaved thin)

½ head of purple cabbage (shaved thin)

2 carrots (peeled and cut into thin sticks)

1 c cilantro (picked and chopped)

2 limes

4 oranges juiced

¼ c crème fraiche

¼ c sour cream

¼ c mayonnaise

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp sesame oil

2 tbsp sesame seeds

Dressing Ingredients

1 oz ginger (peeled and minced)

½ shallot (minced)

2 scallions (sliced thin)

¼ c soy sauce

1 tbsp mirin

1 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 tsp fish sauce

½ red bell pepper (minced)

Method

Start by heating the oil you will need to fry the soft shell crab.  If you do not have a small tabletop fryer for your home you will need a candy thermometer and a large deep saucepot.  

Clean the softshell crab by snipping off the front area where the eyes are with a scissor. Flip the side of the shell up and clean out the gills. There is a flap on the underside of the crab indicating male or female. Cut that off and the crab is ready to be breaded and fried.

Mix the flour, panko, seasoning and corn starch to make the breading. Whisk the eggs with one cup of water and you have your crab breading.

Whisk together the oj, crème fraiche, sour, cream, mayonnaise, honey, lime juice, and sesame oil to make your coleslaw dressing.  Toss the shaved cabbage and carrots together with the dressing, the cilantro, salt and pepper.

Mix the dressing ingredients together for the sauce to dress the crab after it has been fried.  To fry the crabs, dip them in the egg mix and coat in the breading. Fry at 350 degrees for two minutes on each side. Place the crab on a bed of the mixed slaw.

Garnish with some toasted sesame seeds and enjoy.
