Colorful Crab Stir-Fry Recipe

Colorful Crab Stir-Fry Recipe

My love for seafood has carried over from childhood, when we used to fish together as a family. So I was happy to find this change-of-pace recipe that combines stir-fry with seafood. It tastes like a special treat but is a breeze to prepare.—Lee Deneau, Lansing, Michigan
