"I did think this was good but needed a bit more zip. I added more salt and some white pepper plus a bit more dill and I had some fresh chives so threw that in as well. It did make more stuffing then I had tomatoes for but I simply spread the filling on slices of toasted bread and it was delicious. I have also made tis using shrimp in lieu of crab and it was really good."

"After wanting to make this for a long time I finally found the right cherry tomatoes at a local farmers market. The only thing I changed was I subbed Louis Kemp crab for the canned crab. This is a little bland. I did not add salt. Maybe will add celery salt next time or some Mrs. Dash. It is time consuming, longer than 25 min. that's for sure. Have quite a bit of stuffing left over."
