"Easy to mix together, but hard to keep together. (Broke apart when turning). My husband loved them and told me to keep recipe. I think I will add a little Old Bay seasoning to give it that authentic Maryland crab cake flavor. I left out the lime and lemon juices and served lemon wedges on the side."
