from a native Marylander on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.....we love crab....never, never, never put green, red, yellow peppers in cakes or imperial......crab has a subtle, sweet, succulent flavor..and the peppers totally overpower the natural deliciousness...only need mayo, s&p, Old Bay, egg, dry mustard, lemon...and you're in heaven. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent! I did, however, add the crab seasoning (Old Bay) to the mixture, rather than sprinkling on top. Used about 1/2 teaspoon. I served this for a ladies luncheon and it was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
