      These were fantastic! Flavor was spot on.

      Having read other folks' issues with their crab cakes falling apart, I used a muffin pan as a mold, and refrigerated the whole thing for about 20 mins before breading them. Thanks!

      I have never made Crab Cakes before, I was pleased how easy it was. A great recipe, better than any I have had at the well known Restaurants. I also chilled them for about 2 hours before I cooked them, and they were just great. Thank you for putting this one on the site - Try it, you won't be disappointed!!

      I'm not going to assign stars because I'm just not very good at pan frying so I think any deficiency is of MY making, not the recipe's. These were very tasty but frying 4 to 5 minutes on each side would be WAY too long ... but that may be my problem. I wanted the oil hot enough to fry and not soak the patties with oil and I thought I had that achieved. But the patties came out darker than I thought they should. Very very tasty though and even with my inexpertise, my husband said they were "close" to five star and better than he has had in many restaurants. I will work on my pan frying technique. Thank you for posting!
