    Not-2-Sweet's Note:

    I've always loved that sweet, moist crab served in little dishes at Chinese Buffets. It tastes so simple, but I knew that it wasn't just plain, baked crabmeat, there was a secret for making it special. Well, I found out what it was! At first I thought, "is that it?" But yes, so simple, and oh so yummy!

      This was good, but I would agree that I don't think it's quite what they serve at Chinese buffets, at least that I've had. I topped it with some breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese for some crunch and extra flavor. Served with rice and veggies to complete the meal.

      This was very good, but not quite the same as what I've gotten in Chinese restaurants. I added a little more mayo and baked it in individual ramekins. My local restaurant also serves it a little bit browned on top, so I put it under the broiler for just a little bit of crispy. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.

      I added some ranch and grated cheese, it was good but I think I should have added less dressing. (although it was my fault for forgetting I din't have a squeeze cap!)
