This is the best seafood salad spread I've had in ages! It's great for summer or in the winter, you can heat it like a 'melt' sandwich.

Excellent! - I skipped the "loaf" part - just made up the spread. Then prepared it two slightly different "open faced" ways for a meal (eliminating about 150 calories per serving by skipping the French bread AND the second slice.) First I used a thick piece of Texas garlic toast topped it with a nice layer of shrimp and crab spread wrapped it in tinfoil and baked as directed. Darn good. For the next day's lunch I just put the seafood spread on a regular slice of toast put paprika and pepper and parmesan on top then put it under the broiler. Also darn good! Thanks for a great recipe ME WYNTR and thanks to a national drugstore chain for having the canned crabmeat and shrimp on special this week! Read More

I loved this quick and easy sandwich melt. Very very good. I went with swiss cheese over mozza and split ciabatta buns baking them open face for about 15 minutes in the oven. I also grated a bit of fresh parmesan over top before putting them in the oven. I think next time I would chop up a generous amount of fresh parsley to add to the spread for the added boost of flavor and color. Read More

Yum! This was good cold but even better slathered on a crusty roll and broiled for a few minutes until brown and bubbly. Either way it was super simple and delicious! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was awsome! I found 7 oz. packages of crabmeat and shrimp at WalMart so that made it that much easier. Instead of salt and pepper I used "Slap 'yo Mama" cajun seasoning and baked them open-faced for about 15 min. on 350 degrees. This is a great summer time meal. Read More

Update. I made this recipe again but used steak rolls instead of french bread. It was much better on less bread! Less dry too. Read More

Pretty tasty and easy to make. The canned seafood makes it a little pricy. Read More
