  1. To clean soft crabs, flip up the pointed ends of the crab and remove the gills (or as we called them, the devil) and just cut away the eyes. Rinse in cold water.
  2. Salt and pepper each crab. Dredge in flour.
  3. Heat butter in frying pan until hot and just smoking. Place two crabs in the butter at a time. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove to paper towel.
  4. To make sandwich, place two crabs on a slice of white bread, add lettuce and tomato. Add mayonnaise to second slice of bread, salt and pepper to taste.
