MY REVIEW

Delicious. Went over big at work pitch in

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2012

Used artificial crab. Much easier than picking through canned crab to get rid of cartilage, and no loss of taste/texture.

One star lost for this and lack of precise warming time.

Found flavour to be near perfect... Would maybe add a little Worcestershire sauce next time, but not much!

I SEE SOMEONE ADDED HORSE RADISH, YUM. THAT MAY DO THE TRICK. I THINK I'M NOT GOING TO WASTE IT BUT PUT IT IN SOME SOUP LIKE CLAM CHOWDER.

MY REVIEW

I'M SORRY. I DID NOT FIND THIS RECIPE TO HAVE MUCH FLAVOR AT ALL, UNTIL I ADDED SPICES, LIKE OLD BAY SEASONING AND CAYENNE PEPPER. I REALIZE THAT CRAB DOESN'T HAVE A LOT OF FLAVOR BUT I COULDN'T TASTE SEAFOOD AT ALL, AND AFTER SPENDING 2.99 ON A TUNA SIZED CAN WASN'T WORTH IT, AGAIN, SORRY.
