    Very light and tasty. I didn't change anything. Just added lime slices.  -  03 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought I had imitation crabmeat in the freezer, but it turns out I had run out, so I substituted some Japanese fish cake sliced thin and halved. I also eyeballed the ingredient amounts rather than measuring everything out. It turned out delicious. Next time I'll try it with jumbo lump crab meat!  -  20 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Husband didn't care for it very much. I didn't mind it, but it might have been because I added a variety of greenage.  -  01 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
