This recipe was so full of flavour. I omitted the almonds and added the green onion to the mix instead of just for garnish. I will definitely be making this again, it was quick and easy and tasted absolutely delightful.

These were very easy to make, and quite tasty. However, I did what others suggested and used fresh crab meat, rather than canned. Another reviewer said it was missing something, but she didn't know what. I agree. I added fresh minced garlic, which punched it up a bit, I also added 1/4 teaspoon of finely ground white pepper. What I suggest is to try the filling, before assembling. Add spices you know you like until you get it right.


They seemed like they were missing something, but I'm not a good enough cook to know what they needed. Other people liked them, though.
