    pgserver6's Note:

    These are the best crab cakes I've ever eaten. I got the recipe from Cuisine magazine. Every time I make them I hear alot of oohs and ahhs and requests for the recipe. There's a local family-owned restaurant in town known for their crabcakes. My teenage niece said they were the only crabcakes she likes, until she tried these. These are even better.

      This is almost my exact recipe. I only use onion or scallion. Franks' Hot Sauce not Tabasco and the main difference is I add horseradish. Not much. Maybe a small teaspoon full. Try it. You'll say, oh my goodness this are good. What is that flavor?

      I made these for my parent's visit and my folks really enjoyed these! Based on the reviews (thanks!) I made the following changes. Rinsed my 'canned' crab meat from costco. Used only 1/2 of the old bay and NO salt. A smidge less on the worstershire and the tabasco. Dredged the cakes in flour and fried in a combo of butter and veggie oil. (I know fattening....but were they ever good!) This will be my GOTO recipe. Also made a crab cake remoulade sauce from another posting on this site to accompany them..... YUUUUMMMM. UPDATE: I make these ALL the time. Usually dredge in flour or more breadcrumbs and then fry in oil. This time - trying to watch calories, fried them in 1 tbl EVOO for 4 min a side, and the cakes got nice and browned. No need to add more calories or fry in lots of oil / butter. From now on - only going to fry them in 1 tbl total on non stick pan - heat at medium for 4 min/side.
