Soft Shell Crab BLT Sandwich


4 large soft shell crabs, cleaned
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup corn flour
12 strips of bacon
4 thick slices of tomato
2 cups shredded lettuce
4 ciabatta rolls, lightly toasted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 slices of pepper jack cheese
canola oil for deep frying
kosher salt and black pepper to taste

This is a wonderful BLT sandwich with the addition of a crispy fried soft shell crab.

  • Fry the bacon until almost crisp and  drain on paper towels.
  • Meanwhile fill a large saucepan or deep fryer 1/3 full of oil and heat to 350 degrees.
  • Add the soft shell crabs to the evaporated milk, letting the excess drip off, then dredge in the corn flour. Shake off excess.
  • Fry the crabs in the hot oil until golden and crispy. About 5 minutes.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, split the ciabatta rolls and lightly toast, then spread each side with mayonnaise.
  • Add a slice of pepper jack to each bottom roll, then 4 strips of bacon, a thick slice of tomato, then a soft shell crab.
  • Top each sandwich with shredded lettuce, season with salt and pepper and add the top roll.
