  • 1

    Rinse the crabs under cold running water and pat dry on paper towels. Transfer to a large resealable plastic bag.

  • 2

    Make the marinade: In a small mixing bowl combine the lemon juice, herbs, Traeger Cajun Shake, and Worcestershire sauce. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Pour the marinade over the crabs and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • 3

    Drain the crabs and discard the marinade. Lightly dust the crabs with Traeger Cajun Shake.

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 450℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

  • 5

    Arrange the crabs directly on the grill grate and grill, turning once, until the crabs turn orangish-pink and don't seem "squishy" when pressed with a finger, 16 to 20 minutes total depending on their size.
