      Obreinfamily, I see my friend Gordon has been here and you answered my question as to whether or not it was real crab you were using. I love crab and get a regular delivery from North Sea fishing town called Grimsby. I'm sure your recipe is delicious as it is, because the fish/crab sticks are reallt tasty. I particularly like the cheesey sauce idea to go with it.

      I have a hub for ciabatta if you would like to swop links I'd be very pleased.

      with respect

      Tony

      Hi,

      Looks delicious. I love crab and spinach but can't remember the last time I ate crab. Will need to get hold of some soon and try your recipe.

      Thanks for the idea!
