   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.
