• 12 Crabs, soft
  • 12 oz Beer; warm
  • 1 1/4 c Flour
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Paprika
  • 1/2 ts Baking powder


Pour beer in mixing bowl, add flour then remainder of ingredients. Mix well. Prepare batter at least 1-1/2 hours before use as it will thicken standing. Dust crabs lightly in flour; dip singly in batter. Deep-fry at 360 degrees for 2-5 minutes depending on size. Crabs should be golden brown. Drain and serve.
