Top Review by J. Ko

I made this recipe after adopting Crab Cake Guy from the PAC Fall 2007 Orphanage. I thought that the amounts of peppers, celery, green onion, paprika and chili powder seemed to be a little on the "light" side, so I increased the amounts of the vegetables to 2 Tbsp each, finely minced. I also increased the amounts of paprika and chili powder to approximately 1/2 tsp each, left the salt about the same and added a liberal amount of pepper. After combining all the ingredients, the mixture was a little loose so I added an extra egg to help bind it, as my eggs were a little on the small side. I used a 1/3 c measure to help form the crab cakes and got 10 generous cakes, which I fried in a small amount of olive oil. I served, as suggested, with mixed greens and a balsamic vinaigrette. I will definitely be making these again and again! Thank you Crab Cake Guy for posting such a delicious recipe!
