Saw this recipe just in time to include it at my last big party. Being a last minute addition, I had no time to go shopping for the crabmeat, so I used chopped fresh cooked shrimp instead. Added a bit of shrimp cocktail sauce to the mix, and some finely chopped green olives. My guests raved, and so did I.

These are terrible. I made it twice. The second time I rinsed the crab for 10 minutes under cold water and even squeezed lemon juice over it to kill the fishy flavor. No luck. Both batches tasted horrifically fishy. Both batches went into the garbage.

I've also found that the crab spread makes a great hot dip when served with triscuits or club crackers
