This was really wonderful. Having said that I made a few changes partly based on previous feedback. I cut the parsley in half used 3/4 cup of mayo instead of a full cup (and used a low-fat version) and added 1/3 cup shredded swiss cheese to the mixture. It's not that I felt there would be too much mayo -- it's just that I wanted to add the swiss and knowing it would melt I had to cut back on something to reduce the grease and not overpowering the seafood completely. Thank you for an inspiring idea! Read More

The idea is there but the flavor is not. The most noticeable problem was that it was way too heavy on the breadcrumbs. Use about 1/4 cup breadcrumbs so that you can actually taste the rest of the stuff in there. The 1/2 parsley is good if you're using fresh. Keep it to about 2 tablespoons if you're using the dried stuff. Add 3 cloves minced garlic and about 1 tablespoon oregano. Add black pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. Read More

Excellent! I served this as an appetizer for a dinner I did make a few changes: used low-fat mayo to help cut the fat (you honestly won't miss the fat) added some finely minced garlic to the crab and mixed in some Parmesan cheese with the bread crumbs. Made lemon butter for people to drizzle over their own servings. Everyone enjoyed it! Read More

Very good. I think it needs more seasoning but otherwise very good and easy to make. I used canned crab Geisha brand and I did reduce the mayo to 3/4 cup and used a light mayo. I also only used one stalk of celery since I don't normally like it cooked but it did keep its crispness so I was happy. I think next time I will try adding some cheese on top instead of the bread crumbs. One other thing I did was I used homemade Garlic croutons and ground them up to make bread crumbs. I will be making this again for sure. Read More

We enjoyed these. I am not big on mayo so I was a little worried after reading the reviews but I thought it was just the right amount. The only reason I am not giving it a 5 is that I added old bay and cayenne due to previous reviewers saying it was bland and I if I hadn't added them I would have to agree. It was an easy fix though and I will make this again. Read More
