This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 - Mexico, Courtesy of Mission Foods. Please note that cooking time is chilling time. The longer they sit the more the flavors will blend and they will firm up more, allowing for easier cutting. Can't wait to try this recipe, it sounds awesome to me. You could easily substitute other crab meat for the lump crab if you desired.
