I know there are many versions out there for shrimp and crab salads, but I like to fix different things and try to work my own ideas into a dish to make it my own. This is one of them. I like wraps too, so this is one I make a lot as it keeps well and is a fast meal when in a hurry.

Picture will be coming soon to tantalize your taste buds.

    (NOTE:) Old Bay is very salty. Increase or decrease depending on your taste. 3. Mix well until all is combined and smooth.

  2. Using flat bread or tortilla, lay a Romaine leaf and sliced Avocado, if using. Spoon on Shrimp and Crab mixture.
