    GRILLED SOFT-SHELL CRABS
    from "Nantucket Open-House Cookbook" by Sarah Leah Chase

    One day I wondered why no one ever grilled soft-shells and decided to experiment. The results were sensational!

    Makes 4 servings
    INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

    Juice of 4 limes
    2 tablespoons golden tequila
    1 clove garlic, minced

    PREPARATION

    1.Three hours before you plan to grill the crabs, whisk the lime juice, tequila, garlic, jalapeno pepper, and coriander together in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Place the crabs in a single layer in a shallow bowl. Pour the marinade over the crabs. Cover the bowl and let marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
    2.Prepare charcoal or wood chips for grilling.
    3.When the coals are quite hot, remove the crabs from the marinade and place them 3 to 4 inches form the heat. Grill just until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes each side. Transfer the crabs to a serving platter and drizzle with some of the marinade. Serve at once.
