What a wonderful recipe!! I made this for our Valentine dinner and used 1 1/2 c of ff half & half and instead of crab I broiled sea scallops and shrimp which I chopped. I served it in puff pastry and had it with beef tenderloin medallions, asparagus, brown rice and tomato slices. What a wonderful presentation! I almost licked the plate clean. The sauce is to die for. Thanks for the recipe!!

My husband liked this but I found it to be lacking something that I can't put my finger on. I will try this again but maybe with a mixture of seafood. That maybe what it is lacking some more texture.

Thank you so much Barefoot Beachcomber for sharing your lovely recipe. My family and I enjoyed it very much. The instructions were well written and easy to follow. The sauce was beautiful; thick, smooth, silky and velvety, light not heavy. I served it over angelhair pasta and jumbo shrimp. Yummy
