      This was delicious. I made this for my husband and some of his co-workers and they devoured every morsel. It was a unanimous 5 star review. I made the sauce with 2 tsp. wasabi, but will increase to 3 next time. I might also cut back a little on the capers. This goes together quickly and is definitely a keeper recipe. Reviewed for ZWT4.

      These were great though a bit labor intensive as most fried things are ;). They are mostly crab meat so they are surprisingly filling since the cakes aren't that large. The wasabi caper sauce is really good and would be great on other things as well -- it has a nice kick from the wasabi and the capers add saltiness and the mayonnaise is very subtle in it. Very delicious and hope to enjoy again.
