Soft Shell Crab BLT’s

Thanks to the Wall St. Journal for the inspiration to buy the soft shell crabs. And thanks to #GailMonaghan for providing the wonderful story in the weekend journal that inspired tonight’s dinner. Read it here. 
I used the flour and cornmeal mixture from Gail’s recipe in the Wall St. Journal to create my Soft Shell Crab BLT’s.

6 soft shell crab
1 cup flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 eggs 
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix eggs and buttermilk in separate bowl. Dredge crabs one at a time in flour then buttermilk, then flour again. Fry in 1 inch of canola oil for 3-4 minutes per side. 
Fried soft shell crab, mayo, applewood smoked bacon, butter lettuce and tomato. Yummy. 
Fry for 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown. 
Sizzling deliciousness.
