butter, salt, red pepper, black pepper, garlic
and onion in a roasting pan and place into 500º
Carefully cook until the onion and garlic turn
golden brown. Be careful not to burn it.
Remove the pan from the oven and place the cleaned,
cracked crab into the pan and mix thoroughly.
Make sure all of the crab is coated with sauce.
Place the roasting pan back in the oven at 500
degrees and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Turn crab
every 5 minutes or so. Oven temperatures vary,
so carefully watch the pan so as not to burn it.
The crab should be heated completely through and
the sauce should be braised onto the shell.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle chopped parsley
over the crab and toss. Transfer to serving platter
and serve with parsley garnish and lemon slices.
