 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    Soft shelled crabs
    5       T            Butter
    1       T            Oil
    2       T            Pecans
 
   Prepare the crabs by removing the eyes, dead-men
   (spongy grey gills), and sand sack.  Heat 3
   tablespoons of the butter and the oil in a heavy
   skillet until hot and sizzling.  Add the crabs.  Saute
   a few minutes on each side.  Remove to a warm plate.
    Meanwhile, brown the pecans in 1-2 tablespoons
   butter.  Pour over the crabs and serve. From Nathalie
