  1. In a large bowl, add the cream cheese, onion (onion can be minced in blender.You could use scallion white ends as long as they are minced well.).
  2. Add 1.5 cups crab meat (use a knife to cut and pick apart. You can use real crab from can, drained and picked apart. Must not be watery.
  3. Pat dry if need be.You will need 1.5 packages or cups for ball and a cup to roll in and a hand full to sprinkle, so set aside before hand so you don't forget).
  4. Add a squeeze of lemon juice. mix well.
  5. Use fork at first to mash then wash hands well, or use plastic gloves and mix well. Taste, if you need more crab, add some.
  6. Roll into a nice size ball.
  7. On a plate, dump 1 cup of crab meat and spread out on plate.
  8. Take the crab ball and roll into crab meat, cover well, then put into a Pretty Clear bowl.
  9. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set refrigerator at least 1 hour before serving.
  10. When ready to serve do the following:.
  11. Take your serving platter and layer it with dry leaf lettuce leaving a bare part in the middle. This is where you will set your crab ball. I put mine into a Pretty clear glass bowl.
  12. Set your crab ball in the middle, Pour seafood sauce on top like a sundae, it will drain into the bowl, not the platter, don't worry.
  13. Sprinkle the remaining crab meat on top of the sauce. Then put a lemon slice halve twisted on top of that, take the rest of slices and place around bowl, then stick a pate knife in the side.
  14. Place your crackers in layers around the ball and you are ready to go.
  15. Enjoy!
