Okay, so they are not the kind that causes itching and you can't find them pole vaulting off public toilet seats...But promise you..people actually do want you to pass these around.
If anyone knows our family, you know we go nuts over good seafood dishes. Shrimp, scallops, oysters, fish, and of course crab meat. There are so many different ways to prepare crab cakes. Each area hasn't their own distinct recipe. Me, eh, if it has real crab meat I'm not going to turn it down.
This recipe is a cross between your typical Maryland crab cake and Paula Deen's recipe. It's not exactly a Maryland crab cake, yet, not to far off.
These hold up great without to much flaking and would make great Crab Cake burgers.
Me, I like them just the plain ole fashioned way...with a fork.
