    Good recipe with some tweaks.<br/>I halved the recipe, but kept the amount of garlic, lemon the same and used dried parsley since it's all I had on hand. I used chicken broth as well.<br/>It turned out perfect with the doubled garlic and lemon.

    I used imitation crab meat and quadrupled the garlic (fresh) and I thought this recipe was fantastic!!

    This was good. It needed a little something in my opinion. I added a little parmesian and an extra clove of garlic. I still think it lacked something but I will try it again. My 3 year old and 17 month old loved it though!
