    Expat in Holland's Note:

    This recipe is out of a 1994 Bon Appetit magazine. It was given to them by a famous chef in Florida. It is still one of my favorite recipes for crab cakes and the avocado butter is a nice change from the normal condiments one gets with crab cakes.

      Very good! There is a discrepancy between the amounts of lime juice for the crab cakes in the ingredient list, and the directions. I decided I'd rather use 2 teaspoons than 2 tablespoons. I was also out of Dijon mustard, which, as I remember, is quite mild. So I substituted brown grainy mustard for it, and used less. To get 8 cakes out of this I think you would have to make them quite dainty. My yield was 5. Overall, a very nice and unusual recipe. Thank you for sharing.
