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

Am I correct in assuming you mix the bread crumbs and butter and sprinkle on top? Recipe doesn't say.

I am assuming the same thing--only possible place for it that I can see

Hi there! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The breadcrumb mixture has been added into step 2. Thanks again!

The crabmeat can also be purchased canned, it tastes almost as good as fresh. And, imitation would work also, just not as much crabmeat flavot.

I don't live in an area where fresh seafood is available. Can I use imatation crab meat in this recipe?
