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?

After trying many recipes this stuck. Altough I do mine on pan and fry in olive oil. I only used imitation crab but it works great. The key is have them cool and not to mess with them before turning. About 3-4 minutes in one side on my skillet, and I roll them in light coat of seasoned breadcrumbs before frying. I love every ingredient in this recipe! Thank you!

Best crab cakes ever. Love that they are broiled, not fried or baked. Second time around I used cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs. Thanks for sharing!
