    Grace Lynn's Note:

    This is my all time favorite crab salad! I think using quality crab meat (Phillips) is the key. This is so addictive, I always double the recipe!

      I made this last night, adding a bit more spice and an extra clove of Garlic, and i must say this is probably the best seafood salad I have ever served. I made the whole recipe and my wife and I nearly finished it. I uesd the Chicken of the Sea "premium swimming blue crab meat" from costco, and used cooked salad shrimp instead of boiling the shrimp in Clam juice, and the result was still fantastic. I just used the cooked shrimp because the temperature here was over 100 degrees F and I did not want to boil ANYTHING. For the record, the Sostco cooked Salad shrimp worked just fine. You have to try this at least once.

      This was a great dish, I used a little white wine with chicken boullion to do the shrimp, as my wife dosn't like it too fishy, so this worked great. Just a note but it was a bit spicy, not so much of the cayenne next time.

      Delicious! I loved this salad. We can not get clam juice here so I used V8...don't ask, it worked! I will gladly make this again and again.
