To prepare breading, mix bread crumbs with oregano, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper.
Spread on a flat dish.
Set aside.
Combine melted butter and olive oil and pour into a shallow bowl.
Roll crabs in melted butter and then dust generously in bread crumbs, patting crumbs so they stick securely to the crabs.
Preheat stovetop grill.
Cook crabs over medium-high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes, turning once.
Crabs are cooked when the color changes from bluish to a reddish hue and they become slightly firm to the touch.
