Corn CrabCakes

Posted on

Crab cakes are a favorite of mine. Whenever we go out to dinner, my eyes immediately search for the jumbo lumps of goodness. To be honest, I don’t really make crab cakes very often at home. I always see the fresh crab meat at the store/market and think 18 dollars is a lot for a small 8 ounce container of crab.  My rationale doesn’t make sense, because when you go to a restaurant, crab cakes are usually anywhere from 20 to 30 dollars. Well, I was feeling daring this past weekend at the store, and I made the plunge and bought fresh crab meat. I was really happy I did, because these corn crab cakes turned out great and from the 8 ounce container, I made 6 smallish cakes. Not bad for 18 bucks!

Do you love crab cakes? Do you make them at home?
