I made this recipe for a party and it was a huge hit. I think this is the sort of recipe you either love or hat - no middle ground.

I made this for a dinner party. I am glad I tried it before I served it, because it was not very good at all. I will not make this again

Too wet to ball up: absolute failure. If I could give zero stars, I would. Completely unpresentable.

I used this recipe as a starting point for making a krab mix for sushi. I don't particularly enjoy cream cheese in my rolls so I substituted mayo and used the rest of the ingredients to my own ...

Delicious! Used and 8 oz. cream cheese, green onions instead of regular and rolled in dried cilantro instead of fresh.
