Super delicious and SO easy, really pretty quick, and for a poor college student, really not that expensive to make! I used the herb goat cheese which actually I felt worked really well, and next time we're going to try adding those little mini shrimp cocktail shrimp. We tried the crab cakes with both a plum sauce and a Thai red pepper chili sauce, and while both worked, I recommend the chili sauce. The mild spiciness was a nice contrast.
