"This is the best seafood salad spread I've had in ages! It's great for summer or in the winter, you can heat it like a 'melt' sandwich."

1 (6 ounce) can
small shrimp, drained
1 (6 ounce) can
crabmeat, drained and flaked
thinly sliced green onions
1 (8 ounce) package
shredded mozzarella cheese
ground black pepper
1 (1 pound) loaf
French bread, halved horizontally
Excellent! - I skipped the "loaf" part - just made up the spread. Then prepared it two slightly different "open faced" ways for a meal (eliminating about 150 calories per serving by skipping the French bread AND the second slice.) First, I used a thick piece of Texas garlic toast, topped it with a nice layer of shrimp and crab spread, wrapped it in tinfoil and baked as directed. Darn good. For the next day's lunch, I just put the seafood spread on a regular slice of toast, put paprika and pepper and parmesan on top, then put it under the broiler. Also darn good! Thanks for a great recipe, ME WYNTR, and thanks to a national drugstore chain for having the canned crabmeat and shrimp on special this week!
something is missing in this.. wasnt thrilled.. wont make again
I loved this quick and easy sandwich melt. Very, very good. I went with swiss cheese over mozza and split ciabatta buns, baking them open face for about 15 minutes in the oven. I also grated a bit of fresh parmesan over top before putting them in the oven. I think next time I would chop up a generous amount of fresh parsley to add to the spread for the added boost of flavor and color.
Yum! This was good cold, but even better slathered on a crusty roll and broiled for a few minutes until brown and bubbly. Either way it was super simple and delicious! Thanks for sharing. :)
This was awsome! I found 7 oz. packages of crabmeat and shrimp at WalMart, so that made it that much easier. Instead of salt and pepper, I used "Slap 'yo Mama" cajun seasoning and baked them open-faced for about 15 min. on 350 degrees. This is a great summer time meal.
this is so good!!! ... nothing to add or change... great recipe ... thanks for sharing...
Instead of salt I used old bay and pepper. The family enjoyed this heated.
Update. I made this recipe again but used steak rolls instead of french bread. It was much better on less bread! Less dry too.
