What a nice change of pace for a soft shell crab lover like myself! I made this exactly as posted, using sriracha for the hot sauce. I let them marinate for about 1-1/2 hours and then grilled them as directed. The flavors were subtle, yet complemented the crab nicely. Thanks for sharing this. Made by a fellow Renegade for ZWT 6.
