Quick, economical, low fat and calorie~~over all, pretty good. I really liked the lemon and unfortunately only had 1/3 cup and no zest. Added a squirt of bottled lime and some lemon pepper to compensate. Used sliced small sweet peppers, yummy! Served over quinoa. Will make again for sure.

This is one of my favorite recipes I've gotten off this site. I usually serve it over cous cous and love it every time. I respect the others opinions, but want the chef to know that this is a unique dish that might not be for everyone, but I sure appreciate it!

12/4/08 This was ok. Only one 1 out of 4 in this family REALLY liked it. I am not a big fan of crab real or imitation, but was hoping to find a recipe that would change my mind. I found it rather bland and I was not that keen on the texture. It was really fast to make, but I doubt I will make it again.
