VERY GOOD! But unfortunately, I forgot the salt, pepper, and paprika. So don't do that and you will probably end up with a 5 star dish. Thank you!

We really enjoyed this. You do taste the nutmeg. So if you don't care for it I would leave it out. Next time I think I would use fresh crab meat over the can. That way you would get more chunks and better flavor. This is a must try. Thanks for posting.
