"As a personal chef, I may try a dozen or so recipes before I settle on one to present to a customer. This is where I stop on crab cakes! These are the best I've ever had. A better name would be crab b..." See moreurgers. Make sure to use lump meat because they really just hold themselves together. And the dipping sauce is wonderful. My husband made me make them two nights in a row!"
"I have finally found a winning crab cake recipe. These crab cakes are incredible. It has the perfect amount of filling to crab ratio, which for me is you barely taste filling and all crab. I made..." See more a few adjustments; used Ritz Crackers, sauteed a very small amount of onions/celery/garlic, added a little cayenne and crushed red pepper. I mixed everything e except the crab meat and put that in last and just turned with a spatula so I didn't break the lumps. After forming the crab cakes, I topped each with a little extra old bay seasoning. For crab I used Blue Star pasteurized lump crab meat in the packet, it was very good. I have no opinion on the sauce as I like a sweeter sauce, so I went with the Honey Mustard II another poster suggested, with some adjustments it was excellent as well."
