2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
12 medium fried soft-shell blue crabs
1 14-1/2 ounce can stewed tomatoes
  fresh parsley, chopped
In a medium sauce pan, saute onion in melted butter or margarine over low heat 2 to 3 minutes. Stir flour into onion mixture until blended. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper; cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Arrange fried crabs on a platter. Pour tomatoes over crabs and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

6 servings.

Make tomato sauce first so crabs can be served immediately after frying.

Look for "Fresh from Florida" ingredients at your grocery store.
