with a twist

I had a large can of lump crabmeat, I had a pound of well sprouted bean sprouts I had a bag of potato chip crumbs, what did I do? I made crabcakes. These are great on a salad of water cress dressed with olive oil, lime, salt and pepper. They are also good with your favortie mayonaise like a chipotle mayo or wasabi mayo and eaten in a sandwich. They are also good when you grab em' right off the draining rack and eat them plain just like that.


The hardest part is not eating hands full of the crab. This crabmeat was exceptionally good, no 'things' that I needed to pick out and uniform, although small, lumps through out. I recommend buying this rather than plucking it all out yourself, saves you from hurt and tired fingers, I have done it and even though it is cheaper to do it yourself you have to weigh the value.

For example.
If not....then......................
eat this...........
buffalo you included.

I LOVE crabcakes!! What brand of canned crabmeat did you use?

I use good quality canned crab meat- when it's on sale! A good crab cake is as great as a bad crab cake is horrible. You're closer to good ones than I am here in the Midwest! Yours look great!
