Sounds yummy. Can't wait to try!


I did not enjoy this dish. The sauce is rather runny which makes for a soupy texture. The flavor is quite bland as well. I added garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley but it only made it reminiscent of Old Bay seasoning. The jalapeno is not a good idea because, given the size of the dish, no matter how finely it is minced you will end up with bites that are very spicy and bites that are bland.

I love a lot of Eatingwell recipes but I would not make this one again, especially given the $8-$10 cost for a 1 LB tin of crab.
