    This a great dish with some added spices. I added 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/2 - 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning to the crab mixture. It gave it some needed zing. I made this for Valentine's Day and it was a hit. Next, I'll make it for a dinner party of 12. They're going to love it!

    The crab was too fishy for me and we bought the really expensive one wasn't really my cup of tea

    Delicious! I added garlic and herb seasoning to the crab mixture for extra flavor and it was perfect! And it's so easy to make! Two thumbs up from my husband! I'll be making this again soon!

    Instead of plain salt and pepper I used grill mates steak seasoning other than that I followed the recipe exactly and loved it.
