Ingredients
  Fine bread crumbs 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried basil 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Minced parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon, melted
  Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Soft shelled crabs 8
Directions

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.
Reserve.
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.
