preparation

1.  Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Remove all the crabmeat from the shells and put it in a large bowl. Melt the butter, then mix in the lemon juice, mustard, nutmeg, and cayenne. Gently fold this mixture through the crabmeat, taking care not to break up the large chunks.

2.  Spoon the crab mixture back into the crab shells and lightly level the tops.

3.  For the topping, mix the breadcrumbs with the melted butter, then stir in the grated cheese. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the crab.

4.  Place the crabs on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until they are golden brown and the filling is heated through. Serve hot, with the lemon wedges.
