    Laurita's Note:

    Ambrosia is a food of the Gods - it's a heavenly treat! I love being able to prepare it ahead of time because the cooking time is quick. The very best crab cakes have a lot of wonderful crabmeat and very little else. It takes you to paradise by way of Key West!

      Spoil all your buddies! This is great and easy. They are great with any type of seafood sauce - tartar, cocktail, but this sauce is classic.
