Crispy Crablets

Crispy crablets are baby crabs marinated with rum, salt and pepper. Then coated with flour and deep fried. As per instructions, don’t forget to remove the carapace of the crab. It’s the upper shell cover of the crab which is very hard and have spikes which might be unpleasant to eat. Selecting the size of the crablets are also important. The smaller the better about an inch or slightly larger. Because the shells are thinner if the crabs are about that size. And when you deep fry it, the crablets will then become crispy.
