Wellspring had these handsome soft shell crabs today. I took two home and plumped them in some skim milk. In the meantime I clarified some butter. My mom had left some cranberry vinaigrette--I probably would otherwise have made some tomato/basil, but wanted to use up what was in the Fridge--so I decided to use that with the crabs. After I dredged them with flour and ground pepper, and a sprinkle of kosher salt, I fried them in virgin olive oil and a couple tablespoons of the clarified butter.
