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!

I made this for the new year dinner. I think that it needs more flavor. I would make it again but add flavor

Since my wife does not like crab meat, I used salad shrimp instead.After sauteing the shrimp for one minute in olive oil and butter, I added it to the other ingredients for the stuffing. She stated that it was the best Filet ever!! Well of course, THAT made me happy!We will make it again. I have added it to my monthly menu and am anxious to try it again.Thank you,Jay
