"These were excellent! We are from Louisiana and have had our share of crab cakes. My husband said these were the best he has had. I made a couple of changes. I used Tony's Cacheries seasoning inst..." See moreead of tarragon and I broiled them 10 minutes each side in the oven to cut down on fat content. Great recipe!"
"Really good and easy too. I didn't have tarragon so I just used some Old Bay seasoning and it was great...." See more"
"Super good, made them for Xmas Eve party everybody loved them. Did a double batch as I had 2 /16 oz cans of crab. Didn't have tarragon replaced it with minced garlic on one batch and hot sauce on ano..." See morether, also did half lemon juice and half worcestershire, amazing! They are wet, added a little more cracker crumbs, chilled for an hour before cooking and coated them with italian bread crumbs, totaly amazing! I think the buttery crackers is the key ingredient in making these cakes taste so smooth."
