Wow, some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. The rosemary/garlic/lemon mayonnaise is outstanding. Thank you.

Great! The mayonnaise in the cakes was a nice touch to make them light and creamy. I also loved the rosemary mayonnaise which was a flavor combination I've never tried with seafood before but it went wonderfully with it.

barb, these are just wonderful! these crabcakes are just bursting with crab and none of the usual additives/fillers. we truly enjoyed these and i wouldn't change a thing-except to double the recipe next time! and serve with lots of lemon quarters
