This took less time to make than what I had thought- it seems more complicated than it really is. The flavors are terrific and very unique! I love crab, but was getting a bit tired of just crab cakes, so this was a wonderful change. I'll definitely be making these again! With smaller rolls, it would be a terrific party food! Thanks Derf for ANOTHER terrific recipe! You've never let me down!! :)
