It was the day before Father's Day, and my Brother-in-law and I decided to try something new-- We thought making our own soft shell crab sandwiches would really impress Dad.
After stopping by Fireflies Gift Shop on Bennett's Creek, local knowledge led us to Johnson & Sons Seafood in Suffolk, Virginia. Jimmies, females, primes, hotels and more, you can purchase by the dozen or bushel.
Located on Bennett's Creek in Suffolk, Virginia, you'll be awed by the view and the beautiful fishing vessel named The Mariner, as you arrive.
We bought a dozen Prime soft shells, battered those bad boys up, dropped them in the fryer, and had soft shell crab sandwiches for Father's Day. Dad enjoyed them very much along side his signature crab cakes. What a Father's Day feast!
