    I even made this with a refrigerator pack of mixed crab and shrimp + can of tuna--- I put a little too much celery- but it was GREAT and we at the whole bowl at one sitting : ) Thanks for a yummy recipe!  -  18 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent! I added colored cheese tortellini to the recipe and it was gone soon after it arrived at the table!  -  31 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was great! I used frozen cooked shrimp (thawed) but just added those, the crabmeat and tuna the last 3 minutes. A big hit at a recent pool party. Even those who are not lovers of fish devoured it....thanks for a "keeper" recipe.  -  26 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
