Mealthy Tip

Refrigerating the prepared crab cake patties serves two functions. First, it allows the flavors to combine before cooking. Also, it helps bind the crab cakes together so they don't fall apart while frying.

This crab cakes were pretty good. I always usually season mine with seafood seasoning, like Old Bay, so I was missing that a little from this recipe, but nonetheless they were delicious. Just goes to show that it's good to try new things. The saltine crackers also worked wonders, that was new for me too.

These were really good crab cakes. If you've never made them before, this is a good recipe to start with. These cakes held together nicely, didn't fall apart like some others do.

Turned out perfectly, but as mentioned in other reviews need to add in seasoning.
