Servings: 2 to 4
A light coating of seasoned flour gives the crabs’ tender shells a little extra snap; boost the flavor with Old Bay, cayenne, or any other seasoning, if you like. You can also substitute cornmeal for the flour for extra crunch. If the top shells are thicker than a piece of tissue paper, they will be chewy, so you might want to pull them off and discard them after cooking.
