I found a Laurel School Alumni Cookbook in a local antique store. It has many marvelous recipes including this one from "Phillips Crab House" in Ocean City, MD. It is printed on page 130 and was submitted by my friend and co-worker, Sharon Whaley. I have not made it yet, but am adding it here for those who like to try recipes from famous restaurants.
