Every time I go to my fave Chinese restaraunt I HAVE to eat this crab casserole. I love the flavors, the texture, heck ... I just love everything about it except for the fact that it makes me wish I had a second stomach just so I could eat more!) At first I didn't think there was any breadcrumbs in it. My MIL said there is. So, I went and bought a bit of it and pulled it apart bit by bit and found there was indeed some breadcrumbs in it. Anyways, I believe this is how they make it. Please let me know what you think.
