Super-seed Crusted Oven-Fried Soft Shell Crab topped with Caviar on a bed of Spinach and Thinly Sliced Vegetables tossed in a Pickl-y Lemon Crème Fraîche Dressing.
Two things: one, this is not fried; and two, this is not chicken! I thought I’d call it that because it mimics the crunchy satisfaction an ol’ bucket of fried chicken would give you but without the guilt! This recipe utilizes the uncommonly used soft shell crab which is encrusted in a heart healthy super-seed crust and baked in the oven instead of being dunked in a vat of oil. Caviar is added for a decadent salinity boost and a quick and easy bed of salad is the perfect accompaniment.
Soft shell crabs are regular blue crabs that have been harvested after they’ve molted their exoskeletons during the months of april to mid-september. Their macronutrients are composed of 91% protein and 9% fat with no carbs to spare which makes this a perfect meal for those who choose to eat on a keto or low-carb diet.
