This was excellent and a healthier alternative to frying. We added Old Bay to the flour for extra flavor. We'll definitely use this recipe again each soft shell crab season.

Pretty darned simple, but that's what makes it so good: it allows the full flavor of crab to come through. I would _not_ add Old Bay or anything similar that would mask the light flavor of these delicious crabs, but YMMV. BTW, I highly recommend a viognier with crab--makes for an excellent pairing.

Simple and delicious. If he crab is fresh, you don't need any other seasoning beside sea salt and black pepper. YUMMM

Why in the world does a soft shell crab need any flour or breading?? simply sautéed 'em in butter and old bay.....you will never want them any other way.

Simple and delicious. I served it with saffron rice and steamed asparagus. The crabs pair well with Viognier. A bit hit!
