Last night, as I was wondering what to make for supper, I went to the refrigerator and spotted a package of imitation crab meat. I went online and searched for easy recipes that incorporated crabmeat as the main ingredient. I found a crab meat sandwich recipe that looked good, so I decided to give it a try.

I had all of the necessary ingredients, but I decided to add other ingredients as well. My husband loves cayenne pepper and cilantro, so I added those to the mix. We both loved it! The great thing about this recipe is that you can add new ingredients or omit one or two of the existing ones. I hope you love this recipe as much as we do.
