      These were only okay. The Wasabi Mayonnaise was horrible. I used the wasabi powder - maybe the paste would have been better. The crab cakes had a good flavor without it. The level of taste was not worth the money that it took to buy the crabmeat. Next time I buy crabmeat - I want to taste the crab.

      We were very happy with these little crab cakes, although I did forget to add the chives. I served them as a side with a tossed salad for a light, but rich and filling dinner.
