Reel in a breezy taste of the seashore with these delectable, crispy-coated crab cakes from Oxford, Pennsylvania’s Marjie Gaspar. Her refreshing, lip-smacking lime sauce adds a delightful summery tang to this old-fashioned favorite.
- 2 cans (6 ounces each) lump crabmeat, drained
- 1 green onion, chopped
