      Yummm!! Have made this twice now, and the second time I used half lemon and half orange juice,then added about 1/2 cup of dry white wine to the crabs before putting them in the oven. Next time I will double the garlic and reduce the red pepper to 1/2 teaspoon. I think this would work well with snow crab or king crab too. Double the sauce...with a crusty sourdough bread you will need it for delicious dipping! Thanks for posting carmen.
