Fried Crab Claws
Fried crab claws are a popular dish in coastal areas, particularly in the Southern United States. They are made by coating crab claws in a seasoned batter and then deep-frying them until they are golden brown and crispy. The crab claws are usually served with a dipping sauce, such as cocktail sauce or tartar sauce.
Crab claws are typically taken from the legs of blue crabs, which are abundant in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic coast. The meat inside the claws is sweet and succulent, and it provides a nice contrast to the crunchy exterior created by the batter and deep-frying. Fried crab claws are often served as an appetizer or a snack, but they can also be served as a main dish with a side of fries or coleslaw.
