The soft shell crab season is about to start (it usually runs from May to July) and I thought I would share a soft shell crab recipe that I really like with you.
Typically found in Japanese restaurants, these homemade soft shell crabs were coated with panko, deep fried, and served with ginger ponzu sauce. The radish sprouts–seasoned with just a wee bit of olive oil, salt, and black pepper–add extra punch and lend a tint of peppery flavor to this dish without requiring too much effort…
Panko, or Japanese bread crumb is one of the many secrets of Japanese cooking. The roughly shaped bread crumbs create light, airy, and extra-crunchy coating on fried foods, especially on these soft shell crabs. Packed in a plastic bag, panko can be easily found in Asian markets…
I simply adore soft shell crab. It’s a real delicacy and a true treasure as the whole crab can be eaten as is–which is a great perk in my opinion as I don’t have to crack up a storm to extract the crab meat from the shell–so less hardwork and more gastronomic goodness. Now, that’s a keeper.
