I'm always looking for ways to use the crabs we catch, so I don't know how this great recipe by fellow Aussie and friend Terese slipped by me! We used fresh crab and as we had no spring onions, used a couple of tablespoons of mild white salad onion. We also threw a few tablespoons of chopped, peeled prawns into the mix which was wonderful. As we eat a lot of crab cakes, I suspect the added sweetness of the corn, the guacomale and the simple treatment of the crab really made the dish for us.
