This tasted very bland. It lacked much of a seafood flavor as well as seasoning. All those juices I drained off should have been put to use somehow. I followed the recipe verbatim and at the end I was unable to resurrect it with additional flavoring such as Old Bay and additional seasoning salt or pepper. Read More

This is delicious! I made it as a dip for pita bread and it came out really well. I added shredded parmesan cheese just to finish it off. It was a huge hit! Read More

I loved the concept! I had about 3 cups of store bought alfredo sauce I needed to use up and no idea what to do with it!! Since the sauce was already prepared I just used my food processor to shred frozen crab meat and frozen shrimp. I also sauted about 1 Tbsp of minced onion and a quarter of a green bell pepper finely chopped in some olive oil. Mixed it all together salt and pepper to taste and YUM-O! Read More

Simple to make but if you're using canned shrimp or crab you don't need to add more salt. I used frozen shrimp and this turned out wonderful. I agree it would be great on top of pasta! Read More
