    sounds good but I hate to be the party pooper. About half the recipe is major Paleo No-Nos  -  02 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't BEGIN to tell you how good this recipe was! I made a lobster tail stuffed with this crab mixture. The flavors positively burst in your mouth. The red bell pepper provided just a little kick (along with the Tabasco sauce). If you're doing paleo, Whole30, or Fast Metabolism Diet, you HAVE to try this!  -  14 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Loved this recipe! Like some of the other reviews, I found that my cakes were falling apart a bit (which is totally OK because it means they're not full of starchy filler)... so instead of putting them on a baking sheet, I placed them in the cups of a muffin tin and baked them that way. Came out perfect!  -  17 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
