These crab cakes are delicious!!! DH and I both loved them - the only thing I added was some red pepper flakes to the cakes. I did not make the dressing b/c I'm just not a big wasabi fan, but the crab cakes themselves are perfect. They're light and tender. I served over arugula and just used "Asian Silk" dressing on the leaves. Great recipe, thank you!
