    These were a big hit! Everyone also really loved the garlic may with it. I had to add a few soda cracker crumbs for consistency and that seemed to work very well. They tasted fabulous! Thanks!

    This was fantastic! Everyone raved about them! I made the cakes into a meal so made them a little bigger and still ended up with 6 large hamburger patty sized cakes. I wanted to take pictures but my fiance was grabbing them as I put them on the plate with the excuse that they MUST be eaten straight from the stove. This is a keeper for me!

    These were great, even my fussy eater loved them. I didn't use the butter, but sprayed them with PAM instead and they were fabulous. Next time I'll make the garlic mayo sauce as well.

    CL, I made these for my DH's birthday party this weekend. I tripled the recipe, and took Geema's advice and also used some finely crushed cracker crumbs, they held together great...I used half fresh and half imitation crabmeat. I wasn't too sure how the coriander would go over, so I used only 1 tsp (dried) for the tripled recipe. I served them with the wonderful garlic mayo on the side. My guests just when through these like crazy! there was nothing left at all, after, they were asking me if I had any more made up (DH the birthday boy) was upset as he only got to have a couple LOL!, so I will make these again soon. What a fabulous recipe, thank you for sharing!...Kitten:)
