Recipe by JackandDawn

This humble and interesting dish graced every festive family meal, created by my host-mom in Voronezh, Russia. We've shared it back home with friends here in the states, and they get hooked! It seems like the flavors wont mix, but they do perfectly. The dish is so versatile, it can be served cold with crackers or baguette slices, between slices of bread for a sandwich, or pop it in the oven for a gooey cheesy dip. If you can afford it, try fresh crab. But honestly, the imitation crab does just fine. Try it, you'll like it! :)
