"A crab cake served with a fat-free yogurt dill-lime sauce that's simple enough for busy weeknight dinner! Made with nutrient-rich, fat-free yogurt and try using reduced-fat Parmesan cheese. The cheese does contain a small amount of lactose, and the live and active cultures in yogurt help digest lactose, making it a friendly option for those who are lactose intolerant."

This was good. I would make it again. I am not an overly citrus person, and this is a lot of citrus. I recommend heating on medium. medium high made them burn. My picky BF liked it too:)

First, I don't know how this could be done in less than 2 hours. The coleslaw was so dry, I needed to add 1/2 c low fat mayo to make it edible. I didn't care for the consistancy of the fat free yogurt sauce, and yes, I agree it is way too citrusy. That being said we did enjoy the crab cakes. I substituted ground up pistachios for the bread crumbs, to keep it more low-carb. I also fried them in some olive oil to give them some crisp. becareful not to try flipping them too early or they fall apart. I probably will make the crab cakes again.
