Grilled Soft-Shell Crabs with Butter and Hot Sauce

4 to 8 soft-shell crabs, depending on size
¼ cup butter
Salt to taste
Juice of ½ lemon
Several drops of hot sauce or to taste

Preheat gas grill.
Soft-shell crabs burn easily, so the fire should be past its peak before grilling the crabs.
Melt the butter and add salt, lemon juice, and hot sauce to taste.
Grill the crabs about 4 inches from the source of heat, turning and brushing frequently.
Total cooking time will be 6 to 10 minutes.
The crabs are done when they turn bright red and firm.
Do not overcook.
Serves 2 to 4.
