    3. 3
      Pat dry if need be.You will need 1.5 packages or cups for ball and a cup to roll in and a hand full to sprinkle, so set aside before hand so you don't forget).
    4. 4
      Add a squeeze of lemon juice. mix well.
    5. 5
      Use fork at first to mash then wash hands well, or use plastic gloves and mix well. Taste, if you need more crab, add some.

      When ready to serve do the following:.
    11. 11
      Take your serving platter and layer it with dry leaf lettuce leaving a bare part in the middle. This is where you will set your crab ball. I put mine into a Pretty clear glass bowl.
    12. 12
      Set your crab ball in the middle, Pour seafood sauce on top like a sundae, it will drain into the bowl, not the platter, don't worry.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle the remaining crab meat on top of the sauce. Then put a lemon slice halve twisted on top of that, take the rest of slices and place around bowl, then stick a pate knife in the side.
    14. 14
      Place your crackers in layers around the ball and you are ready to go.
