"This turns out very well. I was glad to see it on this site because I had lost my recipe that I had for many years. I think it is not an effective idea to rate a dish after you changed it. Review the recipe ONLY if you make it in its original form, otherwise you might confuse novice cooks."

"This is a wonderful recipe with a few changes. Definetely sour cream instead of milk, I also used leeks instead of onions (which I sauted for just a minute) As suggested I added peas and raw red pepper instead of pimentos. Also added a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes and a little more worcestershire sauce. Topped with breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese last 15 minutes. Fortunately I live where we catch our own crab and added raw prawns which I used instead of shrimp."

"My daughter is vegetarian but will eat fish, and it's Thanksgiving here in Canada. I decided to try this for our Thanksgiving dinner. I read all the preceding reviews and decided on my grocery shop to get sole, shrimp, clams and crabmeat. I used fresh green beans as an added vegetable (the long skinny Chinese ones). It was one of the best meals I've ever cooked. It's an expensive dish but almost no time in prepping, and the wow factor is super worth it."

"Excellent, I modified this recipe just a little bit. Saute shrimp in olive oil, Old Bay seasoning and a dash of lemon juice, also used two Tilapia filet cooked in the same shrimp juice, shredded when done and cheese. Topped with crab imperial sauce."

"I served the seafood over pasta and used canned clams in lieu of crabmeat. The meal was a hit. I plan to take the recipe to Florida and serve it to friends and family."
