Yield: 6 Servings
Categories: Fish crab, Main Dishes, Barbecue

Ingredients:

12 Maryland soft crabs; live
-or frozen
Seafood marinade; see part 2


Recipe by: The Maryland Seafood Cookbook.

Dress live crabs see (*) below; thaw crabs if frozen. Liberally baste
bottom sides of crabs with marinade and carefully p-lace, bottom side down,
on barbecue grill. Grill over slow fire, at least 12 inches from coals, for
5 minutes. Liberally baste top of crabs with marinade, turn carefully and
grill five minutes more. Makes six servings, two crabs each.

(*) To Dress Soft Shell Crabs: Use only live crabs. With a sharp knife, cut
off "apron" or flap that folds under the rear of the body. Turn the
crab and cut off the face at a joint just back of the eyes. Lift each
point at the sides with the fingers, remove the gills, and wash the
crabs in cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.
