"Made this for New Year's Eve. Used tiny shrimp instead of crab, and the results were outstanding."

"It didn't specify which pesto to use, I used a tomato based one but it may have been better with the basil? The tomato gave it a pizza sauce taste which isn't really what you want with crab. Great appetizer idea and worth experimenting with :)"
