      Wow! Being from Maryland, I have to admit, I have never grilled a soft crab. I have now, and this is delicious. The salad, the grilled soft crab, all of it. For a bit of extra Maryland taste, I did add 1 teaspoon of "Old Bay Seasoning" to the olive oil that I brushed the on the crab. The salad it lightly delicate, and the crab savory. A perfect Maryland evening meal. Thank you Susie Cooks! Made for *ZWT3 07*
