A good friend of mine once said that there was nothing like food in Georgia. Boy was he right! This dish was served to me at a very informal "formal" dinner party. The informality was that we all just sat around and ate and talked. The formality was this dish and believe me, it is something I would never hesitate to serve to anyone. I was very glad he wasn't stingy with the recipe because I think I could eat this at least once a week!

Good for company coming choice! I was impressed by the combination of delicious flavors going on with this dish. I love crab, so whenever I see a recipe others are raving about, I am going to try it. This one was a pleasant surprise and wonderful!
