This is crab imperial with a shrimp paste added. It makes the texture of the dish, more like a spongy crabcake. Every time I make it, people just love it.

Please note that this is 5 stars with no other ratings. Between the 2 eggs and mayo (mostly eggs) the dish is more like an omelet than a crabcake. There are better uses for crab and shrimp. Read More
