In a small nonmetal bowl, micro-cook sliced green onion and the butter or margarine, uncovered, on 100% power for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until the green onion is tender.
Stir in lemon juice and bottled hot pepper sauce.

Spread shrimp open and place, cut side up, in two 10-ounce oval casseroles.
Cover with vented clear plastic wrap.
Micro-cook, covered, on 100% power for 1 1/2 minutes, rotating the casseroles a half-turn once.
Drain off liquid and rearrange shrimp, placing the least-cooked portions to the outside of the casseroles.
Spoon crab mixture over shrimp.
Micro-cook, covered, on 100% power about 2 1/2 minutes or until shrimp are done and crab mixture is heated through, rotating the casseroles a half-turn once.
Serve with lemon wedges.
