    Dawn's Note:

    This is an adaption of a South Beach recipe. The features that make it a healthier and lower carb recipe are still in place, but I've added a Cajun twist to it. The result is a delicious crawfish patty with a tasty, spicy red pepper sauce. The original recipe calls for crab and it is just as tasty.

      I made these as crab cakes for a Mardi Gras party. They are a bit time consuming to make, but well worth it. The Red Pepper Sauce with the crab cakes made them even better.

      Thanks for the great dinner Dawn!!! Very easy but very elegant at the same time. Served over a bed of mixed greens this was a great light summer meal. Looked very pretty too. I will make this again very soon! Because I read C in PA review about the filler, I used 2 lbs of crawfish, but followed the recipe otherwise. This worked out awesome!!! My dh and I were very happy. It was quick enough for our weeknight dinner, but it made a nice change from our usual routine. The sauce is fantastic (I did use 1/4 cup mayo and 1/4 cup sour cream though, and added 1 chopped garlic clove too). Thank you again for submitting.

      I used crawfish that I found frozen at the local grocery. The cakes were very delicious and easy to cook. Tedious to put together though. My friends loved them. Will make again.
