    Ashley U's Note:

    My two favorite things: dungeness crab and curry meet together to make an unusual, but lovely curry. Very romantic, and it would be great treat for a dinner-date. This recipe is from "Pacific Passions Cookbook" by Karen Barnaby.

      very pretentious, flavors did not meld together well. No where near worth the price!
