I had a bit of leftovers from our crab boil the other day and wanted to use it all up. Note that I just used the water stock from the crab boil itself so you do NOT need to add any salt! This turned out very yummy, though I used a puff pastry crust and forgot to vent it so it turned kind of soggy underneath instead of crisp. I think next time I’ll go back to a pie dough style of crust.
