“Super easy and very healthy, this is a terrific recipe! The better quality crab you use, the better the results will be. Lump crabmeat is the best choice and imitation crab would be the worst! Also, you can make this into an appetizer by using cherry tomatoes. You have a lot of options with this. The recipe is from the GI Diet Clinic cookbook. Enjoy!”
