1 lb crabmeat, fresh (can use other suggested seafood)
1 tablespoon Italian dressing (to marinate the crab)
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning (to taste, if prefer spicy go up to 1 tablespoon)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (important to use Dukes or Hellman's)
1/4 cup red pepper, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1 small spring onion, minced
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard (Dijon can be subbed)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 dash Tabasco sauce (add more for additional spicy taste)

Carefully comb through crab meat for any extra shells.

Making sure not to break up crab, marinate crab pieces with Italian dressing for about 1 hour. But if you don't get a chance, ten minutes works well too.

Mix all other ingredients in a medium bowl thoroughly.

Add crab meat mixture to mayonnaise mixture and mix with spatula, again not to break up pieces.

You can either cool in fridge for an hour or two, or you can eat directly.
