  3. Add liqueur and bread crumbs and cook for 5 minutes longer to blend.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper, transfer to bowl and refrigerate until set but not hard, approximately 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 shallow remekins or small baking dishes and divide the crabmeat among them reserving 6 of the largest pieces for garnish.
