      Made this last night for dinner for DH and I. Used Emeril Lagasse's Essence#14372 as you suggested for the Emeril's Essence and followed the directions completely. DH said please make again! It was a delicious and easy dish but made for an elegant dinner. Served with a green salad and a glass of wine. Will make this again. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

      I thought this was excellent. I am a real crab lover and this was very "crabby." I only used 1 tsp of the Emeril's Essence because it is a tad spicy for me and dd. Thanks PaulaG for the opportunity to make such a great recipe!
