The crab cakes were excellent, my husband prepared them, said they were very easy to prepare. However, we were both very disappointed in the sauce, it didn't thicken at all and was entirely too limey for our tastes. We did question the 1/4 cup of lime juice but went with it, perhaps that is an error in the recipe? We will try a Remoulade sauce the next time we have the cakes, as we will have these again.

These crab cakes came out great! They were easy to put together and really didn't take all that much time to prepare. The work was so worth the effort! We loved the sauce and it really added to the completion of the recipe. We will definately be making these crab wonders again!

I bought a pound of expensive but great, fresh crab meat from my local gourmet store to make Mrs. Duval's Crab Cakes. The cost of crab meat was well worth it, this recipe was great. As suggested, I prepared the crab cakes the night before. I actually made mini crab cakes to serve as appetizers. I used scallions instead of onions. I fried them up, 3 mins per side and served them with the Remoulade Sauce 87124. I attempted the chili garlic sauce suggested, but it didn't really work for me. I am glad I found a substitute. The crab cakes with the remoulade sauce were devine. Very pleased with the texture, colour and taste. Also, my guests LOVED them. Fresh ingredients is key. Thank you for the posting.

These were wonderful Caroline!!!!! We loved them. I've been wanting to made crab cakes fo a long time.I've been looking for a recipe to make the Perfect crab cakes...I found yours; what else can I say...Fantastic! We don't have crab meat too often where we live, but I was lucky enough to have some leftover crab meat from Mother's Day that I stored in the freezer. Thank you so much for sharing Mrs Duval's recipe as well as your sauce to accompany them. Rita

Very good crab cakes! The sauce along with the lemon wedges really compliment these crab cakes perfectly. I initially thought, when assembling the cakes, that something must be missing in the recipe because I was having a difficult time forming a patty. However, after they chilled, the cakes not only held their shape, but cooked to a beautiful crisp, golden brown. Thank you, Caroline Cooks!

These were outstanding! I thought that there would be some leftover for lunch at work the next day, but a couple of friends stopped over and they scarfed them up!
