I love crab mousse! I have made this at least a dozen times and it's great with Carr's Table Water Crackers. This is a great one for parties. I have made the recipe as stated but I have not added the curry powder in the past; I will try it with the curry next time. Thanks for posting, salvador1709, this is one to save!

I make make this all the time, but instead of cream of mushroom soup. I use cream of celery.

This is the exact same recipe as my grandmother makes. Every year she makes me one for just me. My favorite Christmas recipe. Even over sweets! :-)
