      miller has left a rich legacy of wonderful recipes here on zaar, and this is one such stellar recipe. i didn't change anything (except that i didn't coat the patties in crumbs) and we loved the red peppers in the crab. we had this with avocado butter (#97094).

      This recipe was great! I didn't have any red bell pepper so I added finely minced onion. Served with a spicy aioli this was fantastic! Thank you!

      Fabulous and filling! I used fresh Dungeness crab and mixed in breadcrumbs, but used Panko to coat the patties before frying. I served these with a sweet chile dipping sauce and a concoction of horseradish, mustard, sour cream, lemon, and chives. Wnderful recipe..thanks for posting.
