In Delaware, we’re surrounded by an abundance of fresh seafood, particularly terrific crab. The secret to great crab cakes is fresh crab meat, not too much filler and not breaking up the crab too much. This recipe does all that. —Cynthia Bent, Newark, Delaware

"These crab cakes were great. I agree with Weems Grndama that these are better than others that have onions and peppers. Reminder to self to make sure the pan is hot enough before adding the crab cakes.."

"Great recipe, simple to prepare. I dip them in breadcrumbs after I shape them, then refrigerate for half an hour before cooking."

"Now this is the way to make crabcakes. None of that green diced peppers or onions taking over the flavor of the crabmeat. I also throw in a dab of dry mustard and cook the cakes in butter. A dollop of fresh lemon juice over the cooked crabcakes also is a plus. There, you now have VA crabcakes."

"Have made this recipe four times this summer and it is delicious. Did not have plain bread crumbs so used Italian and made it just a tad spicier. Also, if you make the crab cakes and refrigerate them for an hour or so before frying they will stay together and not fall apart. Be sure to use 2 spatulas to turn them."
