Soft Shell Crab B.L.T.

  • 1 prime soft shell crab (dressed)
  • 2 crispy pieces of bacon
  • 2 slices of heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 oz. sliced paquillo peppers
  • 1 oz. pepper cress
  • 1 oz. pickle aioli
  • Tempura batter (any)
  • 1 slice of toasted brioche
  • 1 healthy slice of avocado
  1. Deep fry your soft shell crab in fat (any will do but oil is best and easiest) until golden brown and set aside and let rest.
  2. On a plate, spread your aioli and set toasted brioche and begin to build your sandwich. Start with your heirloom tomatoes, then your bacon, and finish with avocado and mache.
  3. Finish with paquillo peppers and salt and pepper.
