Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I got tickled at the person who said it lacked some seasoning or something and then said she ate all 4 servings! Must not have been too bad. I may try it and half and half crab and immitation might be a good idea or the canned crab. But this is from fish so should not have tasted too far off. The Old Bay might be a good idea. I don't like the spicy seasonings where it is too hot, but many do like them. Ritz or the cheese crackers sound good. As to adding cheese, the Food Channel chefs on Chopped always criticize when cheese is used with fish. I usually take what they say seriously except for the one who doesn't like red onion in a salad. I love asparagus but don't buy frozen. Right now the prices were pretty good on fresh. Could just parboil them and chop them up though I like to pan fry them in a bit of olive oil and some garlic and a bit of thyme. I don't know what I am doing with spices but I try a bit of this and that as it pleases me. I like Rosemary on chicken and like thyme too. I like thyme in my veggie soup and sometimes rosemary as well. I put bay leaves in my Italian sauces. I like escarole and spinach or sometimes kale in my chicken broth soups along with whatever else. Kale only for healthy, not for taste. I get it in juices and smoothies as well, again for healthy sake. I wonder how it would taste creamed like spinach. Anyone know? I like broccoli and only way to tell how it would taste would be to try it. I think asparagus is a milder flavor and would go better with the crab meat. Broccoli is just broccoli and I love in a salad or a side dish.

how do ya.ll think brocoli would taste in it

Can I use something beside asparagus?

I think frozen, then thawed, peas would work well in this recipe. I am not a fan of asparagus.

PLEASE does any one have the recipe for crab caaserole like you get in chinese buffets??????????

I have the Dukan Diet book, and in it, it says that the imitation crab meat is very very good for you. It is made of some kind of fish that is caught in China, and is produced on the ocean as they catch it. Perhaps you should look it up. But it is aparently very very good for you. I hope this was helpful!!

I think the oldbay&cayenne or a little chipotle chile pepper would give it just the flavor your looking for. Other things you could try some lemon zest or dill seaoning,all favorable.

So, I tried this... in a low fat kind of way... and although I ate all of the 4 servings, I did find it left something to be desired. It definitely has potential!!! I look forward to working on a tasty low fat version. I did use the following low fat ingredients: 1) 98% Fat Free Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup; 2) 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed reduced fat Ritz crackers (instead of cheese-flavored crackers); 3) 1/3 cup light sour cream and 1/3 cup fat free greek yogurt (instead of sour cream); and 4) Brummel & Brown vegetable oil and yogurt spread (instead of butter). It turned out to be 10 PointsPlus on Weight Watchers... see more nutrition info here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/recipe/2177628/2 I also tweeted about my beautiful crumb topping here: http://twitpic.com/5hv8gs I am definiteliy going to try real crabmeat and some spices the next time around!

What kind of spices would you use on this. I always have no fat Greek yogurt in the fridge, and light sour cream. Will check out the vegie oil etc. Making it without the cheese might affect the taste.

I wonder if you had followed the recipe if you might have enjoyed it more. The crackers could make a difference and I am not sure it would save you much on fat. The greek yogurt instead of light sour cream might make a difference from sour cream or even light sour cream. I usually use Smart Balance instead of butter in most recipes and they are both very tasty. That might be something to try instead of more yogurt spread. Smart Balance has Omega 3 oils as well. I usually use olive oil for cooking rather than veggie oil. I need to find a replacement for the Cream of Mushroom Soup as they all have too much salt in them. Do you know most foods that are low fat are high in sugar? Check that out as well. I know what you are trying to do but the food companies mess us up with adding other ingredients. Good luck. I will check out your crumb topping.

I have not made this recipe, but every time I try to cook with imitation crab the flavor never makes it through the cooking process. Maybe if you tried 1/2 real and 1/2 imitation it would be more flavorful. The cheese also sounds like a good addition.

I also tried this- and found it to be tasteless. Then I tried using real crabmeat and 1/4 cup shredded four-cheeses and sprinkled with Old Bay and found it to be quite the opposite.

I tried this recipe and altho it is creamy, I didn't find it real tasty. Infact it was almost tasteless. The asparagus was the only thing that gave any flavor to it.
