How to Make Crab Cakes

Plays:

In this video, Chef John reveals the secret to a delicious crab cake—hardly any filler and big chunks o’ good fresh crab! You’ll see how to fold the crab into the slurry. (Incidentally, you will also learn what a “slurry” is.) These cakes are a little fall-aparty until you get them into the oil, but they are well worth it! Check out the recipe for Chef John's Crab Cakes. And one additional tip: for best results, be sure to use good quality crab for these cakes. See more Chef John videos >>

Does anyone have a good recipe for a light sauce for the crab cakes, something more than tarter sauce? Thank you
