  • 4 medium soft-shell crabs
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 soft buns, such as brioche, croissant, or other good-quality soft dinner bun
  • 1 sliced tomato
  • 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
  • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • Several leaves of red-leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons pureed ancho chili peppers, rehydrated


Step 1

Season the crabs with salt and pepper, and sprinkle both sides with the chili powder. Preheat a pan with the oil until nearly smoking. Add the crabs, belly-side down. Cook for 5 minutes before turning. Lower the heat and cook for another 5 minutes on the second side. Remove from the pan and pat dry with paper towels to remove any excess oil.

Step 2

Build your sandwich with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, and avocado, topped off with the crab and chili mayonnaise.
