Chef Emeril Lagasse will bring his passion for seafood to three of his Las Vegas restaurants during a  celebration of soft shell crab May 6-12.

Delmonico Steakhouse, Emeril's New Orleans Fish House and Table 10 each will feature three to four soft shell crab dishes, with different offerings for lunch and dinner. Prices will range from $20 to $40.

The evening menu at Delmonico Steakhouse, which is inside the Venetian, will feature a crispy soft shell crab Louis salad. It will incorporate fresh vegetables such as avocado, red onion and teardrop tomatoes.

Emeril's New Orleans Fish House  at the MGM Grand will honor the restaurant’s Louisiana roots at lunchtime. That’s when it will be serving a pan-fried soft shell crab Po-Boy with heirloom tomatoes and Creole mustard.

Table 10 -- Lagasse’s outpost at the Shoppes at the Palazzo -- will present crispy soft shell crab as a dinner entrée. It’s prepared with "Emeril’s essence emulsion" and served with a sweet onion salad.

"Soft shell crabs are at their peak in this season, and we love highlighting such a signature Gulf product with New Orleans flavor,” Sean Roe, culinary director of Emeril's Las Vegas restaurants, said in a news release.
