Excellent! I made the recipe as directed except for halving the amount of chilies to suite our gringo tummies. I liked the way the sour cream countered the sweetness of the immitation crab. The lime juiced balanced the sour cream while enhancing the flavor of the other ingredients. The onions and chilies added a nice heat as well as crunch. Great recipe Ang !

I liked the southwest spin on crab salad. Everything worked well together. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

wow! This is truly an excellent recipe. I made it with real crab meat though - accept no imitations. IT is even better on toast with a slice of avocado. To die for.
