Cook Time: ~30 minutes
1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1 Large Egg Yolk
1 1/4 Cups Soda Water
8 jumbo soft-shell crabs, dressed
1) Fill Dutch oven or cast iron skillet with 1 inch of oil. Heat to 350F. Preheat oven to 200F
2) In a medium bowl, mix flour and salt. Whisk yolk into soda water in a 2-cup measure until blended; pour over flour mixture, and whisk to gently combine (the batter should remain slightly lumpy and should have the consistency of heavy cream).
3) Place crabs in batter one at a time. Let excess batter drip off crab then fry for one and a half minutes per side or until golden brown. Place on paper towel to soak up any oil. Place in oven until ready to serve.
