Shred lettuce of your choice. Make a mound of lettuce on each plate. Place Crab Meat (Shrimpmeat) on the top of the bed of lettuce. Top with Louie Dressing. Arrange the tomato wedges, slices of hard boiled egg, and black olives around the outer portion of the plate. Sometimes I cut the eggs into wedges and other times as circles.
Two of my favorite things are Dungeness Crab and Cheesecake combined to make this Creamy Crab Cheesecake! Can you imagine what a delicious combination this is?

What makes this Crab Cheesecake so creamy is the combination of the sour cream and cream cheese! Make a day ahead of your party.

During wild caught King Salmon season we see lots of sports fishermen with their catch. The bag limit for the catch is only 2 fish daily in possession. If you go out more than once a week some of these fishermen stock up their freezer for the winter. Or give some King Salmon away to their friends. Some fishermen even send their catch out to be smoked.
