Sautéed Back Fin Crab Meat

Susan Feliciano


You can serve this alone, in little crab shells, or use it to fill crepes. I have used either canned or fresh crab meat for this, and also other types of crab, like jumbo lump or snow crab. It will also work with imitation crab, although I don't use that for health reasons.
