This recipe was given to me by a friend and as usual I always tweak a few things. The original recipe called for shrimp, but I prefer using imitation crabmeat due to allergy to shellfish. And even then I use gloves to prepare this. Not taking chances. LOL Anyway, this recipe is very easy and quick to make. If you don't have a lot of time in the kitchen try this recipe on.
