This was real good with a few changes. With looking at the ingredients I knew would need more seasoning. I forgot the lemon juice and doubled the seafood seasoning. I also added seafood seasoning instead of the paprika on top. We all enjoyed this.

Since we have already gone way over budget this holiday season, I will substitute 1 1/4 lbs of chopped fresh shrimp. Our shrimp guy is on the corner every Thursday with 24 to 36 hour fresh from his boat in the Gulf at $5.00 per lbs. I think I am safe that this will also turn out great.

I can't go back "home" to Michigan without a casserole of anything crab since my transplant to Maryland! During my last trip I actually found Maryland lump crab meat for $32.00 a pound but decided to bite the bullet and get it so I could please a family member. This recipe is very good but there are many. Pick up a Maryland Recipe Book and you'll be happy forever if you like good seafood!
