immediately from sheet.

For Sauce, you'll need 1/2 cup whipping cream, 2 tablespoons chili
sauce, 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning (or to taste), 1/2 pound baby
lettuce and 12 chive leaves. Whip cream until slightly thick and
add chili sauce and Old Bay. Continue beating until soft peaks are

Arrange lettuce on six salad plates, top with one lacy shell, and
mound crab salad on shell. Position another shell on top with a
few sprigs of chives. Garnish shell, salad and plate with a few
dollops of sauce. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
