I was luke warm with these, but DH loved them so I'm comprimising and giving a 4-star review. They didn't really want to stay together to cook in the pan very well, it seemed to me that there needed to be more of a binding agent in this recipe. I thought the dressing was kind of bland. I was anticipating there to be a LOT of flavor from the spices in these crabcakes, but to me the overall flavor was of crab, not the different flavors together. My DH really liked that about this dish, I, however, have a hard time eating straight crab, I like crab, but I like crab with stuff, not as the overwhelming flavor of a dish. So, for those of you out there who like really crabby crab cakes, these are for you, just personal taste that I wanted more of the other flavors to stand out. Thanks for posting!
Delicious!!! The sauce is especially scrumptious!!!!
This is one of those recipes that really deserves way more than 5 stars. I made up the dressing a day ahead to blend the flavores. Really the only change I made was I omitted the cardamom, and changed some amounts slightly. I found that 1 cup of Panko was not enough, I had to add in more as they did not hold together, these are very delicate so you really have to handle with care when shaping, I will use regular bread crumbs next time, I think they would hold together much better. This recipe is going into my favorites and I will repeat it many times over. Thank you ncmystershopper!..Kitten:)
