"These crab cakes are just the best. I make these often at home, and I make a smaller appetizer size for parties. They are always a hit. They are easy and delicious. I won't eat crab cakes out anymore! Serve with fresh squeezed lemon and tartar sauce!"

Hi all...I am the submitter of this recipe. I just want to share a few tips, all veggies should be diced very fine. Before you fold in the crab meat, if the veggie/binding mixture is too loose, add a little more bread crumbs, if it is too dry (which may result in the cakes not sticking together), and a little more mayo. After all the cakes are made, I lightly pat more crumbs on all sides. Yes, I do fry them, but not in that much oil as stated here. I have never broiled them, but I'm sure they are just as good. I hope this helps, and enjoy!


this is a great recipe, with one exception. i think it is always best to saute' your main veges (onions, peppers, garlic, etc.) before incorporating them into the main dish. afterall, the heat of sweating the veges is what brings out the maximum flavor in them. i did add the garlic, which i do to almost all seafood dishes.


These are the most delicious crab cakes I have EVER tasted. This recipe goes beyond the 5 star rating. Ever since I tried these, no other recipe compares. BIG HIT!! Thanks for the GREAT recipe Lori. A definate keeper!!
