Heat your grill and make sure it is clean and oiled. Brush the crabs with olive oil, season with salt & pepper and place them on the grill at a 45 degree angle so that the claws and legs are not hanging down below the grate. Grill the crabs for about 4 minutes per side. Remove to a platter and serve with lemon wedges and the dipping sauce of your choice: cocktail, tartar, peanut, etc., all available at Monahan’s.
