We tried this crab cakes recipe from Allrecipes and OH MY was it good!! We followed the recipe almost exactly. I ended up leaving out the Old Bay seasoning because I didn't have any on hand. For the actual crabmeat itself I used Trader Joe's canned crabmeat. No one even suspected that it wasn't fresh!
The best part about this recipe... so quick and easy to make! I assembled the mixture in the afternoon during nap time, put plastic wrap over it, and stuck it in the fridge. When we were ready to eat I just formed the patties, dipped them in panko, and stuck them in the pan to cook!
These crab cakes would also be a great dish to make for company if you didn't want to spend hours in the kitchen. Serve them with a dipping sauce, a yummy salad, and some fresh bread, and you have an entire meal in under 20 minutes!
(I will definitely be making these delicious and VERY easy crab cakes again!)
