  • 2 oz mezcal (optional)
  • 1 small tomatillo
  • 1.5 oz tomato juice
  • .5 oz lemon juice
  • 1 pinch celery salt
  • 2 tempura soft shell crabs
  • 2 cocktail onions
  • 2 toothpicks

First, rim a martini glass with old bay or black lava sea salt. Next, remove the husk and stem spot of the tomatillo and wash thoroughly. Cut the tomatillo in half and blend. Cook and halve both soft shell crabs. Carefully place each portion of the crab inside the martini glass with the legs facing upwards. Fill a shaker or glass with ice and combine the blended tomatillo, tomato juice, lemon juice, celery salt and hot sauce to taste. Stir for about 15 seconds and slowly strain into the martini glass. Place a cocktail onion on the end of each toothpick and garnish. Top with seaweed salad and enjoy.
