    Ian Magary's Note:

    This recipe was given to us at the Red Bar in Grayton Beach, Florida. They make the best crab cakes I've ever tasted. They're served with a Lemon beurre blanc sauce drizzeled over them recipe not included... I still have to find a good one, but this is a start. The recipe was originally entitled "Olivier's Crab Cakes", but most patrons of the restaurant would not recognize them by that name.
