Ingredients

Directions

Place wok and ring over BBQ. Heat 1 1/2 inches vegetable oil in the wok over hot fire.

In 1 shallow bowl, combine the flour and crab boil. In a second bowl, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon water. In a third bowl, put the bread crumbs.

Using paper towel, pat dry a crab. Dredge in flour, coat with egg mixture, then place in bread crumbs or back in flour. Coat well.

Using tongs, lower the crab into hot oil. Brown both sides, about 1 to 2 minutes. While first crab cooks, prepare second crab. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

When crab is done, place on grate or paper to drain.
