So yummy! This recipe is a result of 4 different cook's trying to make the perfect crab cake that would hold up in a busy music cafe but still be authentic. Serve as small appetizers or throw some coleslaw on a kaiser bun with a larger sized one and you will have a delicious sandwich. I always make my own breadcrumbs but purchased will work fine. Try these with my cucumber dill sauce for a refreshing different taste!

I found this recipe easy to do and very tasty. I added a few fresh herbs and used a chipotle suace in place of cayenne pepper. Served it with an arugula salad.

Thanks for a great dinner

Even our picky 5 year old ate her share without complaint! The only change we made was to use panko breadcrumbs on the outside. It made for a light, pleasantly crisp outside. Fantastic!
