The crab topping had a good lemony flavour - I used about half of a fresh red chilli. However, it was a bit sloppy so for me would have been better with less brown crab meat. The 'roasted' bread was OK but very crisp, particularly on the crust making it a bit of a tooth challenge. So would do the topping again with a few changes and regular toasted bread .
