A question about a recipe: Dad's Favorite Seafood Stew

A6022657 cd16 47ec 8d78 63f717d869f7  seafood stew

I have a question about the recipe "Dad's Favorite Seafood Stew" from inpatskitchen. We love this, and I would like to use crabmeat instead of shrimp this time. Any thoughts on this? Don't want to test with the price of crab meat.

By the way, I have used both DRBABS version of making fish stock and IPS version and they are both wonderful!

I have actually made this with king crab meat and it was wonderful. Not sure about blue crab however. Another great option would be langoustines which usually come cooked (as does crab meat) so add at the very last minute.

Thank you! I have a lazy group of diners, so will pull the King Crab meat out - will that work?
