Author Notes: This seafood casserole was one my mom would make for Christmas, as part of a buffet and for company during the year. I believe it was an adaptation of James Beard's Deviled Crab recipe. It's very, very rich and very retro but oh so good! Mom used lobster meat in this but feel free to use more reasonably priced langoustines in its place. —inpatskitchen
