My children are 1/2 Tongan and love crab. I needed to come up with something they would enjoy on our Buffet table on Holidays, our pic-nics, etc. This is it; and both they, all of our extended family and friends love it too. I have been asked numerous times for this recipe (even by the Tongan half of my family!)
