KING CRAB MOUSSE ON ENDIVE SPEARS

* A simple, tasty cold appetizer that will impress any time of year, especially festive for the holidays or at a summer picnic.
* I like fresh king crab the best for this recipe and it is available during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!
* Any good fresh or canned crab will work during the rest of the year.
* Make this a day ahead and store it in the refrigerator.

* 8 ounces fresh king crab meat
