      I love crabMEAT, however, in general I'm NOT a crabCAKE lover because the ingrdients tend to overpower the subtle taste of the crabmeat. This recipe is the first and ONLY crabcake I have ever tasted that doesn't allow the flavor of the crabmeat to get lost. Surprisingly simple and yet it tastes like sophisticated dinner.

      Bev, I was having an old friend and his new girlfriend over for dinner and wanted to keep it simple, but sort of special. These crab cakes served with lemon scented orzo and brocolli was the perfect menu. Excellent! Bev, you rock on girl!

      I thought this was a very good recipe but it seemed to be missing something. Not sure what but the flavor was a little too bland for my tastes.
