I thought this was a great appetizer. It's a very delicate flavour and you need to get the chilli/lime balance just right. I used a large lime and had a little too much lime coming through.

This was an excellent appetizer but for me it lacked something so added a teaspoon of hot horseradish sauce for extra flavour. It was very popular with my guests.

Thanks for your question. We'd suggest buying a tub of fresh crab meat. It is available in larger supermarkets where the chilled cooked fish is.
