'LIVE' Soft Shell Crab at St. Lawrence Market!

Charles Yu | May 21, 202006:30 PM     19

Popped into St. Lawrence market to get some smoked Salmon and Gravlax from Mike's and Seafront. Saw some FRESH soft shell crab on sale. Bought a couple to try. When I unpacked them at home... OMG, they were ALIVE AND MOVING! Totally unexpected!

Tried cooking one:
Soaked in buttermilk for 30 minutes, pat dry, dredged in seasoned flour (salt, pepper and chicken powder) and pan fried in butter and Olive oil, 3 minutes per side. medium heat (Touch overcooked I think?!)

{BTW, noticed over half of shoppers inside market weren't practicing social distancing and wearing masks? Group of 6-7 including adults and kids sharing drinks, all bare face!... Scary! Wonder if this Is the norm down town? Trend is totally reversed uptown!... hard to find people NOT wearing face coverings! Interesting!}
