Good recipe, but if you are using canned crab meat and your cornbread is moist (mine was), you need to drain it REALLY well! My first few didn't hold up in the skillet but the consistency was better once I squeezed the life out of them.

I made this dish to take to a friend's holiday dinner party. They were absolutely delicious! They were moist and light - You could taste the freshly zested orange peel...I did make a lemon buerre blanc sauce to go with them, but they tasted good on their own! My husband said we need to have these again soon!

These were excellent and I would have given it 5 stars but I changed up the recipe. First of all I added a half bag of dried cranberries as 1/4 c. was not enough. I fried them in butter and canola oil as the butter burned. I used 1 tbsp of sage. I also made a remoulade sauce to go with these, which was a combination of mayo, stone ground mustard, diced onions and a few drops of franks red hot. These were very good! Will make again.
