"These crab cakes a delicious. I liked the texture that the celery and green pepper added, and the old bay seasoning gave it some punch. I used dry bread crumbs (3/4 cup) instead of soft bread crumbs."
"They where excellent. I used olive oil instead of butter and egg whites. I will make them again and again"
