We thoroughly enjoyed this spread! I used Surimi crab and cut the recipe back to 1/2 cup but I used the regular amount of crab. I split what I made into 2 dishes and only used the coconut in mine which I preferred though DH liked his without better :) I liked the little bit of sweetness the coconut brought as a contrast to the spice of the curry. I also added a couple of dashes of hot sauce for a little zip to offset some of the richness of the sour cream and crab. I served this with a couple of Tom Collins cocktails which were great together. This will be a go-to recipe for bringing to parties. Thanks loof. Made for Summer Photo Tag

Made this recipe & used it to stuff celery sticks as munchies over several days just for the 2 of us! The only thing I changed was to cut back a little on the amount of curry used! Very, very tasty spread, & I definitely see myself making this one again & again! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
