From the Red Lobster restaurant website. These dense yet flaky, firm yet delicate, Maryland crab cakes are a seaside staple. I made these this evening and even my DH who doesn't care for seafood said it was a keeper recipe. I made them just as the recipe states but next time I might try a little more Old Bay Seasoning or pepper (or perhaps a dash of cayenne or red pepper flakes) to bring some more flavor to these wonderful crab cakes. Serve them a’ la carte, in a sandwich or beside a salad. We used Sweet Chili Sauce drizzled on the plate for another layer of flavor -- the Asian type SWEET-chili sauce, not the tomato-based kind you find with ketchup or the hot type of Asian chili sauce -- which complemented these very well and came straight out of the bottle so no extra work.
Some advice on breadcrumbs: I really recommend Panko breadcrumbs. They give these cakes a nice crunchy outside even though very few crumbs are used for breading. Luckily most major grocery stores now carry this product in the Asian product aisle. If you're lucky enough to have an Asian grocery store in your area go there not only to save money but also to take advantage of authentic, flaky, white breadcrumbs that can be use in numerous recipes! Please do NOT purchase Progresso Seasoned Panko breadcrumbs for this recipe. If Panko crumbs are not available to you, use plain (non-seasoned) breadcrumbs for this recipe.
