Simple Soft Shell Crabs
Soft shell crabs briefly cooked in the tiniest bit of olive oil look unreasonably fancy for a quick lunch. But serve two of these honorable creatures over a bed of naked greens with a squeeze of lemon, and the whole brilliant bowlful might just start to look like the most reasonable 250 calories you've ever seen.
cleaned soft shell crabs
teaspoon olive oil
Sprinkle of fine sea salt
In a heavy, wide skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Sprinkle a little bit of salt around the bottom of the pan.
Place the crabs into the pan in a single layer, shell side down. Cook undisturbed for about five minutes, until the underside is crispy and red with a few browned spots.
Flip crabs and cook on the other side until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more. Serve immediately or pack for lunch.
