      All I can say is wow!!! And that sentiment was shared by both myself and hubby.. This is so good Pat, it gives a great tasting crab meal without taking away from the crab meat itself.. I loved the heat from the cayenne.. I added a little more than a pinch my preference.. We both thought it had just the right little kick afterwards, without being over powering.. I also used a garlic and roast onion tomato paste and gruyere for the cheese otherwise followed this to the tee.. Ooohhh!!! Yum, Yum and Yum I will be making this again for sure.. I had been catching so many mud crabs and have been eating them plain or just with some garlic butter as I feel it is a sin to spoil such good flavoured crab meat with other flavours.. As I had caught so many I decided to change it up a bit, and this to me was the perfect balance of creating a great crab dish, that did not ruin the natural flavour of the meat.. A huge thumbs up and thanks for posting.. Awesome I can not recommend this enough.. Ok I think everyone gets my drift.. :)
