This recipe was made for me at a going away party when I moved from one department to another. I added the lemon juice which is a perfect pairing for seafood. I would say I went away richer with this recipe!

I like the fact that imitation crab meat is used. It makes the recipe wallet friendly!

Making a day ahead marries the flavors together better too.
