Super Bowl Recipe: Fried Crab Claws

Fried Crab Claws - a Gulf Coast classic.
1 pound fresh Blue Crab Claws
1 bottle pale beer
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup Masa Harina
Cajun Seasoning
Peanut oil for frying

Marinate the crab claws in beer for 1 to 2 hours.  In a large bag or fish-breader combine cornmeal, masa, and Cajun Seasoning to taste and shake well to mix.  Drain the crab claws and add to breading to coat thoroughly.  Fill a large frying pan with oil to halfway and heat to medium high.  Fry until golden brown, turning occasionally.  Drain by placing onto a cooling rack over paper towels, lightly season at this point.
