I made this for the family the other night. I didn't have crab so I used shrimp. I cooked the shrimp in garlic olive oil before adding them to the sauce. I also added onions and mushrooms cooked in garlic oil. I will definitely make this again. Next time I may try the lighter 1/2 and 1/2 to see if it will taste as rich as the regular.
