I would avoid this recipe & enjoy precious crab meat with a better researched one.

I made this recipe on 1/13/13 for mine and my SO's dinner. And before getting on with my review I have to confess I did use imitation crabmeat ( it was on sale ). As a previous reviewer flower7, I too used an 8 ounce package. Other than the two changes I mentioned, the recipe was made exactly as written. And with the extra crabmeat, I was able to get 4 small patties. When dredging the patties in the flour they seemed like they were going to fall apart,so I used a spatula to transfer to a preheated cast iron skillet which I had added 3 Tablespoons each of the butter & olive oil. After tasting we both thought that it did need a bit more of a " KICK ". Other than that we thought they were pretty good, and give this recipe " A GOOD SOLID 4 ****'s " .Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
